While Republican efforts to fulfill one of the president's key campaign promises have fizzled several times this year, Trump may have found another reason to get rid of his secretary of Health and Human Services: private flights on the government's dime. Trump said he'd let Price know of his disappointment.
Asked by reporters if he might fire Price, the President left his HHS chief hanging.
Price has taken as many as 24 private flights in the past few months, costing the government an estimated $300,000.
Back in his days as a Georgia congressman, Price had lectured incessantly and sanctimoniously about the evils of government spending in general, and more specifically about the use of private jets by government officials who thought they were too good to fly commercial.
HHS' Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Charmaine Yoest said that the chartered flights were booked due to Price's "incredibly demanding" schedule, and that the department looks at all possibilities for travel before booking accommodations.
The House Oversight and Government Reform committee is launching a wide-ranging examination of air travel by high-ranking Trump officials following reports about Price's trips.
The letter also accused Price of using insider information to trade healthcare stocks when he was a member of Congress.
