Oh, so is Trump actually NOT charging the government for the use
of his properties?  How about a citation that shows that?  

You know, something like this:

"The Government is Paying $2.4 Million to Rent Space in New 
York City's Trump Tower"

"G.S.A. negotiated a separate, successful lease...[it] is 
privately owned, so Mr. Trump’s company will not directly 
benefit from the government lease. It costs $130,000 a month."


(Hint:  12 months @ $130K/mo = $1.56M/year (35% cheaper).

And insofar as security costs vs. Martha's Vineyard, the 
latter is less populated and an island with very limited 
access, which reduces/eliminates a lot of potential security 
threat vectors.  That means that with all other factors 
equal, Martha's Vineyard would be cheaper than any of the
Trump properties he's used to date to provide security for.
