President Donald Trump’s summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago last week resulted in a $1.5 million security tab, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

The Palm Beach Post reported that the estimate includes overtime and other expenses for police from Palm Beach County and Broward County, as well as the local police departments of Boca Raton, Lantana, West Palm Beach, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said.

The estimate also include costs for metal barriers, fencing and other equipment at Mar-a-Lago and to keep crowds from entering the Eau Palm Beach resort in Manalapan, where Xi and his entourage stayed, the Palm Beach Post reported.

The $1.5 million tab is the highest yet for one visit. Since Trump was elected president, his visits to Mar-a-Lago, including the China summit, have cost law enforcement agencies about $3.5 million for security, according to the Sheriff’s Office estimate cited by the Palm Beach Post.

Trump has already visited Mar-a-Lago  dubbed the “Winter White House”  six times since his January inauguration. He is planning to return again on Thursday for Easter weekend and stay until Sunday. [Palm Beach Post] Ina Cordle
