Trump Senior Adviser Refutes Claims Campaign Debt Was Sent To Collections

One of Donald Trump’s senior advisers is refuting a story that claims his campaign debt has been referred to a debt collection agency.

It was initially reported that the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico footed the security bill for one of Trump’s campaign rallies in 2019, to the tune of more than $200,000, according to TMZ. The event required a considerable police presence, which equaled tons of overtime for police officers. The city also blocked off City Hall, among other areas of the town.

Campaign staffers told the city that the rally, which was held in the nearby city of Rio Rancho, would not be covered. Nonetheless, the city of Rio Honcho also came out of pocket for more than $200,000 and got Bernalillo County for more than $140,000. All of the outstanding expenses have since been written off as bad debt.

But Trump adviser Jason Miller says the claim is not valid and that the “story should be retracted immediately.”

“Security matters for a President are resolved by contacting the Secret Service, not whining to the ⁦@ABQJournal,” he said in a Tweet on Saturday.
