Protecting President-elect Donald Trump and his family is presenting the Secret Service some unique challenges.
"The Secret Service is looking at at least one floor inside Trump Tower to basically set up a command post. Now, we spoke to a person responsible for renting out these floors, and we're told that one floor would cost around $1.5 million a year," Pamela Brown said on CNN.
The Secret Service reportedly might take over two floors of Trump Tower for security purposes. That would be $3 million per year, which isn't much when you consider Trump's current New York City security detail costs around $1 million per day, according to city officials.
