President Donald Trump's re-election campaign has reportedly spent $274,000 in rent for space at Trump Tower in New York City during the first three months of this year, Federal Election Commission filings show.

The rent total works out to a monthly average of $91,000 – more than half of what Trump's campaign was paying Trump Tower each month at the height of the presidential race last year, the HuffPost reported.

During last year's race, the campaign had 168 employees with a New York City address on the payroll; there are 20 this year, the HuffPost reported, citing analysis of FEC filings.

With the smaller number of employees this year, the filings show the campaign has paid an average of $4,567 per person in rent over the first three months of 2017. Last fall, the campaign was paying an average of $1,012 per employee in rent, the outlet reported.

Trump in the early part of his campaign in 2015, and the first months of 2016, when he was paying most of the costs himself, was paying $35,458 a month for rent at Trump Tower. The figure nearly quintupled last summer when GOP donors began paying for most of the campaign's costs, the HuffPost reported.
