Trump bitched out Tom Price over his use of private planes

"I am not happy about it and I let him know it", Mr. Trump said Wednesday. "And I know from experience - I'm not almost as busy as he is - but I know it is very hard to get to as many places as you need to be", Carter said. "We'll see", Trump said responding to a reporter who asked about Price's future.

In a letter Tuesday, House investigators asked Price and more than 20 other agency heads to list all use of private, charter aircraft and use of government-owned aircraft by political employees since Trump's inauguration.

"King Trump's spending is bad enough and we can't afford Price's outrageous profligacy with public dollars". On Monday, when asked about the flights during a media briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said twice that "this wasn't White House-approved travel".


Trump has publicly expressed displeasure with an official before, in one of his breaks from past behaviour by presidents.

Charter plane operators estimated 24 flights would have cost $300,000, Politico reported. That reportedly cost taxpayers more than $400,000.

At least some of Price's former House colleagues have further questions about his private plane use. The plane arrived in Brunswick at 4:02 p.m. the afternoon before the start of the two-day Medical Association of Georgia retreat and roughly 40 hours before Price addressed the group, according to airport records and people familiar with the event.


On June 6, Price chartered a private jet to Nashville Tennessee, where he owns a condo and where his musician son lives. The conference itself was organised by a long-term friend. Politico cited vastly less expensive options available at the same time as Price's flights.

The inspector general at the Department of Health and Human Services announced last week that it was investigating Price's travel, as is the House Oversight Committee. "In fact, I flew coach on commercial United States planes".

Price told Fox News on Saturday that his department was conducting a review of the flights. "The IG is going through a review and an audit of this process which we fully support".


"We just want to see whether or not there's abuse there".
