The Donald Trump-transition-team hit back late on Tuesday in New York City officials said they would “send the bill” to cover the cost of the response to a bomb scare within the Trump Tower, calling the aide a “fix” to the mayor’s office.
The exchange began when the city police bomb squad responded to a report of a suspicious package that turned out to be a bag of unattended children toys.
“Get back to work here in the Trump Tower, the tweeted after a false alarm,” Trump spokesman and incoming press Secretary and Sean Spicer, if the situation was on Tuesday solved. “Thanks to the NYPD.”
But then Eric Phillips, a spokesman for the Democratic mayor Bill de Blasio, tweeted: “No problem. We will send you the bill.”
No problem. We will send you the invoice. https://t.co/mxbUqzgHds

The Twitter clash can be traced back to an ongoing complain about the mayor’s office has to guarantee the security for the Republican President-elect Trump and his team.
De Blasio has complained about the city that the security mainly from the choice of day-to-day the inauguration of the President in the Trump Tower-midtown-Manhattan-skyscraper, the president-elect’s residence and transition team headquarters. The mayor has, in fact, an invoice for $35 million sent to the Obama administration.
