    Trump’s health secretary resigns in travel flap
    Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and Catherine Lucey, Associated Press

    Washington — President Donald Trump’s health secretary resigned Friday, after his costly travel triggered investigations that overshadowed the administration’s agenda and angered his boss. Tom Price’s regrets and partial repayment couldn’t save his job.

    The Health and Human Services secretary became the first member of the president’s Cabinet to be pushed out in a turbulent young administration that has seen several high-ranking White House aides ousted. A former GOP congressman from the Atlanta suburbs, Price served just eight months.

    Publicly, Trump had said he was “not happy” with Price for repeatedly using private charter aircraft for official trips on the taxpayer’s dime, when cheaper commercial flights would have done in many cases...

    Price out as HHS secretary after private plane scandal
    Price being investigated for private flights

    By KEVIN LIPTAK AND MIRANDA GREEN , CNN

    WASHINGTON (CNN) - Tom Price, the embattled health and human services secretary, resigned Friday in the midst of a scandal over his use of private planes, a storm that enraged President Donald Trump and undercut his promise to bring accountability to Washington.

    Price's departure came as he's being investigated by the department's inspector general for using private jets for multiple government business trips, even to fly distances often as short as from Washington to Philadelphia. The cost for the trips ran into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    The scandal infuriated Trump, who viewed the controversy as a needless distraction from his agenda. Over the course of the week, Trump fumed to aides about Price's flights, which he deemed "stupid," according to multiple sources. Instead of moving past the storm, Price's offer to reimburse the government for only a fraction of the flights' costs enraged Trump further...

    What was with him only offering a partial reimbursement, anyway? How do these guys get so entitled? If any one of us tried this on our company's dime, we'd be fired instantly and sued for payment. smh

    So who's gonna take his place? It's the health department, yes, so probably CEO of McDonald's.

    No way. The left would boycott McDonald's.

    They're buddies with Trump, so he doesn't mind their use of private planes at taxpayers' expense. Tom Price wasn't Trump's pal; it was just a matter of time - and a lame excuse - before he exited the revolving door.
