A spokeswoman for the umbrella company that controls Trump’s various businesses said today that the Secret Service moved out of Trump Tower to somewhere “more cost effective and logistically practical.”

The Secret Service won’t say where its Trump Tower command post has relocated. A spokeswoman says the move hasn’t affected security. A Government Services Administration spokeswoman says officials are searching for a permanent space. She wouldn’t comment on lease negotiations.
