Biloxi, Tupelo to absorb costs for added security during visits from President Trump


The cities of Tupelo and Biloxi are not seeking reimbursement for public expenses from appearances by President Donald Trump.

Tupelo spent $4,775 to provide security when Trump was there November 1. Mayor Jason Shelton says the costs are a “non-issue” because they are part of a city’s operating expenses.

Biloxi paid about $11,000 when Trump had a rally there in 2018 and about $11,000 when Vice President Mike Pence was there last month.
