President Donald Trump campaigned heavily on eliminating wasteful spending by the federal government.
So when he found out one of his appointed secretaries was spending more than $400,000 on private jet expenses, you can bet he was frustrated.
According to a report, Trump may be planning to fire Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
Per the Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday that he is “not happy” about Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s reported use of private planes in office, and left the door open to firing the cabinet secretary.“I’m not happy with Tom. I’m not happy, and I let him know it,” Trump said. When asked whether he will fire Price, Trump replied, “We’ll see.”
Price has reportedly spent more than $400,000 of taxpayer money since joining the administration on private plane travel that the Health and Human Services inspector general is now probing.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that Price’s trips weren’t “White House-approved travel.”
