Trump to meet Australian PM on 1st presidential trip to NYC

President Donald Trump's first trip to NYC since taking the oath of office will be a short one: He will return to Manhattan during the day and early evening on Thursday, May 4th, before heading to his Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, NJ.

The trip May 4, is Trump's first back home since he left in January to become president. Several protests are planned across the city, including near the USS Intrepid and his home at Trump Tower, threatening to snarl streets and produce images of a city rejecting its famous native son. But in his hometown, the President's homecoming is likely to be met with protests from New Yorkers.

"The New York Police Department said it had been advised that Mr. Trump would not be staying in the city".

Without New York, we wouldn't have had the same Donald Trump.

Mr Trump and Mr Turnbull will headline Thursday's black tie dinner to mark the 75th anniversary of the US-Australian victory against the Japanese.

Hundreds of NYPD officers have been deployed to secure his appearance, with many more on standby on surrounding blocks. Trump is scheduled to meet the prime minister of Australia on the deck of the USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier that has been converted into a museum. He and his friends, without their parents' approval, would ride the subway into Manhattan and marvel at the circus-like atmosphere that seemed to teem from Times Square and other areas in NY, friends say.

It's not clear whether he will even visit Trump Tower.

Fewer than one in five residents in America's most populous city voted for Trump, even though he comes from the city's Queens borough, built a brand in real estate and other ventures associated with NY, and has been tabloid fodder for decades.

"Going back is very expensive for the country", Trump told Fox News in an interview broadcast last Friday.

But Trump opponents have been much more vocal than supporters. The fight prompted the U.S. president to label it his "worst call by far" with a foreign leader and cut short the telephone conversation. Additionally, city officials have portrayed security costs at Trump Tower as a financial burden.

"We are getting what we are owed", New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement praising the state's congressional delegation for helping win the reimbursement money.

Wrolf Courtney, an organizer from Rise and Resist, a self-described "direct action group made up of both new and experienced activists committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties", and one of the groups organizing the protests had a different view.
