Albuquerque refers Trump campaign's unpaid rally bill to collection agency

Source: https://www.salon.com

The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, has referred the Trump campaign's unpaid rally debt to a collections agency, according to Mayor Tim Keller.

Trump left office with nearly $2 million in unpaid bills from cities that hosted his campaign rallies, including a $211,175 invoice from Albuquerque, stemming from his 2019 event in Rio Rancho.

"We decided to bill him because the costs to the city were tremendous," Keller told The Daily Show's Jordan Klepper this week. "They made us shut down downtown. We had to close City Hall. In my mind, he owes us a lot more because there were about a day and a half where we couldn't even function as a city."

The bill includes costs for extra police protection, security measures and paid leave for city employees who were forced to stay home. But as of roughly 18 months later, Keller said that "no phone calls have been returned, so we hired a collection agency."

Anyone else happen to see this??

Mr. "I'm a billionaire" shows once again what a frikkin deadbeat he is when it comes to paying his bills.

What a standup guy and the fools keep sending him money.

Any eventual settlement should have the requirement of coming out of his pocket personally - with a very large penalty, plus cost to the municipality making the claim.
