The Trump administration should pony up for the First Family’s security costs, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says — or else the NYPD should stop protecting wife Melania and son Barron.

“[Mayor Bill de Blasio] ought to tell the Congress if we don’t pay for it, New York City cops aren’t guarding it,” the New York City Democrat told BuzzFeed News. “Let the feds put more people in.”

The city spent $24 million on Trump Tower security measures between Election Day and the inauguration, city officials have said — as First Lady Melania Trump and son Barron remain in New York.
