Department of Defense Seeks Space at Trump Tower – ABC News – “The space is necessary for the personnel and equipment who will support the POTUS at his residence in the building,” Lt. Col. Brindle added.
Located on a boutique-lined stretch of Fifth Avenue, Trump Tower is home to high-end residences and businesses. Owned by the Trump Organization, the building also houses the company’s headquarters.
President Trump has also indicated that he will spend weekends at his 66th floor penthouse, which had been his primary residence before he was elected President. First lady Melania Trump plans to continue to stay at Trump Tower until the summer so the Trumps 10-year-old son, Barron, can finish the school year.
In addition to the Secret Service that provides 24-hour protection to the president, the U.S. military also provides its own support staff to a president through the White House Military Office that coordinates the president’s domestic and international travel.
