Nearly 130,000 people on Tuesday have signed a petition calling on Melania Trump to move to Washington, or foot the bill for securing Trump Tower in Manhattan.

The petition's organizers said U.S. taxpayers are "paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower.

"As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded," the petition says.

The written request comes a week after President Donald Trump unveiled his budget outline that sees sweeping cuts made across U.S. government agencies.

It slashes funding for Environmental Protection Agency and State Department, and guts agencies including such as the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities.

The NYPD estimates that it costs between $127,000 to $146,000 per day to secure Trump Tower, the New York Times reported. The number soars to $308,000 when Trump is in Manhattan.

Using the low-ball figure, it will cost the police department $46,355,000 annually to secure Trump's home-away-from-home.
