The brand new register Albuquerque refers back to the unpaid invoice from the Trump marketing campaign

Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller said the bill covers security costs incurred from Trump staying overnight in a hotel in downtown Albuquerque.

Security costs include locking down parts of the city center, paying overtime to police officers, and covering paid leisure expenses for city workers who were forced to stay at home.

The City of Albuquerque referred the bill to a debt collection agency.

“We actually treated it like any other debt, and so it goes through a process where you mail a few letters,” said Keller. “We didn’t get a response from those letters. And then it automatically goes to an agency helping to collect debt, and those are those annoying phone calls you get, you say you owe money anyway and now Trump gets it.” . “

Most Americans found out about the debt when Keller appeared on the Daily Show to discuss the bill.

Klepper showed the mayor the sign during the segment and offered to send it.

On social media posts sharing the sign, Keller said, “For clarification, we would accept a check from him for approximately $ 200,000 for services rendered.”

KOB 4 had previously reached out to the Trump campaign to see if the city of Albuquerque should be repaid.

The campaign responded with an email stating that the campaign was “reviewing your request”.

For clarification, we would accept a check from him for approximately $ 200,000 for services rendered.
