President Hints At Firing HHS Secretary Over Private Jet Use

President Hints At Firing HHS Secretary Over Private Jet Use

"All of my political career I've fought for the taxpayers", he added.

"Despite this, I regret the concerns this has raised regarding the use of taxpayer dollars", Price said. "I'm not happy", President Trump told reporters shortly before Price submitted his resignation.

The investigation spearheaded by Politico uncovered about $1 million in taxpayer-funded private, charter, and military planes during the eight months of his time in office.

On Thursday evening, Politico reported Price also took an additional $500,000+ in global trips on military planes, bringing the total costs to over $1 million.

Cabinet members are allowed to take government or chartered planes if it's a necessity and there are no cheaper viable options, but it doesn't appear that Price sought out more affordable options.

Price later said he would repay $51,887.31, a fraction of the total cost of the flights.

The new reporting comes after Price tried to put an end to the controversy today by announcing he would pay back some of the cost of his travels. So if I'm doing my math correctly, Price still owes taxpayers a few thousand dimes.

He responded magnificently on Wednesday. "I don't think selfish is the right word because I don't like selfish players". My task is sometimes to try to push him to be decisive in every moment, in every game. "Eden for sure is a top player".

Price said he would continue to work with the Office of the Inspector General to review the processes related to official travel to determine whether any changes are necessary. During his trips, Price met with high-level officials, attended world health meetings, and, in Africa, discussed a response to the Ebola virus.

Fox News reported that Price would specifically reimburse the government just more than $50,000.

Before joining Trump's administration, Price served as a Republican congressman from Georgia. "I can tell you, I'm not happy".

House oversight committee leaders said Wednesday they would investigate private plane travel by all members of Trump's Cabinet.

"We're going to conduct a full review and see what happens", press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday. "I let him know it".

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has also been using private planes for government duties. His department says Pruitt usually travels commercially and only took private flights when there wasn't a viable alternative. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has also come under scrutiny for requesting a government plane to travel to his European honeymoon this summer.
