Donald Trump 'Not Happy' About Tom Price's Use of Private Planes

Donald Trump 'Not Happy' About Tom Price's Use of Private Planes”

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said on Thursday he believed he still had President Trump's confidence, a day after the president said he was not happy with Price over reports he had used private planes for official travel.

"I think we've still got the confidence of the president and we continue to work on important issues like the flu", Price said. Trump said on Wednesday he was looking into the matter, as is a U.S. House of Representatives committee. I'm going to look at it.

Price spoke briefly to attendees, received a flu shot and then left the event without taking questions. "I'm not happy about it, and I will let him know it", Trump continued.

"I am not happy about it".

Politico is now reporting Price took a total of 24 private flights, and a backlash has been growing, particularly since the politician has been a vehement critic of colleagues using private jets.

The House Oversight Committee sent letters to Price, 23 others agencies and the White House asking for an accounting of all senior administration travel since the inauguration and reminding them that Federal Travel Regulations forbid the use of private planes for personal use.

Last Saturday, Price said he would stop using charter flights for travel until an inspector general could conduct a thorough investigation. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has also come under scrutiny for requesting a government plane to travel to his European honeymoon this summer.
