First lady Melania Trump and her son Barron will be moving into the White House this summer. 

A White House official confirmed the move to Fox News, which noted the plans fit the timeline officials had given in December for leaving Trump Tower in New York City. 

A big reason for staying in the penthouse reportedly has been so Barron can finish out the school year

But critics have pointed to the high costs of protecting two different homes. 

The New York Times previously reported that it costs between $127,000 and $146,000 a day to keep Trump Tower secure.  

In reality, three residences have needed protection. President Donald Trump has spent a total of about three weeks at his resort in Florida since the inauguration.

So far, the NYPD and the U.S. Coast Guard have had to bear most of the costs.
