President Donald Trump will return to NY next week, part of his 17-day working vacation, where he will stay overnight at Trump Tower for the first time since he became the 45 USA president.
The schedule, which Politico said remains subject to change, showed the president returning to NY late Monday afternoon, staying at Trump Tower for two days, then heading to his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club to spend the remaining days of a "working vacation".
The NYPD will establish vehicle security checkpoints for random safety inspections on Fifth and Madison Avenues in the vicinity of Trump Tower. Sure, he visited for a few hours for an event at the Intrepid but he's been spending most of his time at his country club in New Jersey.
"We're ready", Stephen Davis, a New York City Police Department spokesman, said.

Trump had been set to arrive in New York City Sunday to hold "internal meetings" at Trump Tower for two days.
However, Trump appears cognizant of the disruptions his visits create in his home city.
The NYPD deployed to guard the outside of Trump Tower in New York City. "Whenever a president came in, it was very disruptive - and I think I'm probably more disruptive than any of them". The tower continues to be the scene of frequent protest marches and demonstrations, though most in recent months have been smaller than the many huge demonstrations that followed the inauguration. "We're ready if he wants to show up tomorrow, or not at all". Opponents of Trump's immigration policies are planning to protest outside Trump Tower on Tuesday. Traffic in the area could be affected, though no route changes or closures have been released as the president's three-day visit has yet to be officially announced.
Trump's time in NY has "been a lot less than we expected", the Democratic mayor said. "So, hopefully, that will be the same this time".
