U.S. Military Moving Into Trump Tower?

According to new reports from The Wall Street Journal and CNN,  the United States military is seeking out the possibility of leasing rental space in Trump Tower in Manhattan.

Due to President Trump’s frequent visits to his penthouse located in Trump Tower in New York, the Pentagon believes it needs to set up shop in the building in order to be in close proximity to the president, affording them “at a moment’s notice” access.

Important factors, such as the president having access to the “nuclear football,” were considered in the decision to rent through the Trump Organization.

Lt. Col. J.B. Brindle, a Defense Department spokesman, released the following statement about the plan:

“In order to meet official mission requirements, the Department of Defense is working through appropriate channels and in accordance with all applicable legal requirements in order to acquire a limited amount of leased space in Trump Tower. The space is necessary for the personnel and equipment who will support the POTUS at his residence in the building.”

Trump Tower’s commercial rental space representative, Jared Horowitz says the average price for floor space between 13,500 to 15,500 square feet can cost around $1.5 million per year.

The potential rental floors would be located directly under Trump’s penthouse residence.
