Trump says he’s not happy with Cabinet member’s flights
WASHINGTON » President Donald Trump said Wednesday he is “not happy” with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price following reports that Price used a private plane for official business.
Price said Saturday that he would stop flying private planes on official business while an internal review of the flights is being done. He’s also said he welcomes the review.
A congressional committee has launched a wide-ranging examination of air travel by high-ranking Trump officials following reports that Price used pricey charters when cheaper commercial flights were available.
The House Oversight and Government Reform committee sent detailed records requests to the White House and 24 federal agencies.
Signed by the panel’s top Republican and Democrat, the requests demand information on political appointees’ use of government planes for personal travel and use of private charters for official travel.
