image for Donald Trump's Tab For MAGA Rallies Jumps to $1.8 Million as 14 Cities Say President Hasn't Paid Police Bills, Report Finds

President Donald Trump's campaign keeps racking up unpaid bills for police and security at his MAGA rallies, according to a new report from The Center for Public Integrity.

The report, published Thursday, found that Trump's team owes a total of $1.82 million to 14 local municipalities for public safety-related costs incurred during the president's "Make America Great Again" events.

That's nearly double the amount of debt that the nonprofit investigative journalism organization found in June 2019.

At that time, the president's re-election effort owed at least $841,219 to 10 city governments.

Newsweek reached out to Trump's campaign for comment on the unpaid bills but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Trump's not the only candidate who has ignored bills from local municipalities for costs incurred on the campaign trail.

According to an invoice from the Burlington Police Department, President Barack Obama owed a few thousand dollars for a visit to Vermont in 2012. »
