President Trump 'Not Happy' With Secretary Tom Price's Private Plane Use

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said "we'll see" when asked if he would fire Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price in the wake of reports he has used taxpayer-funded private planes for government business. "I am not happy about it I'm going to look at it".

"I have no idea who came up with this notion and where it came from, and the notion you could spend $400,000 in what, five months, is stunning", Sebelius said.

Much like he did with immigration, Trump reportedly told lawmakers he would work with Democrats if the GOP could not get health care reform accomplished, according to Reuters.

"On September 19th, Politico reported that you had chartered a private jet on several short official trips, including a $25,000 private flight from Washington, D.C.to Philadelphia and back - a trip that would at most cost $725 round-trip on a commercial airline", the letter reads.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that Price's trips weren't "White House-approved travel".

Two other members of Mr Trump's cabinet are also under scrutiny for their use of private planes while on the job.

The HHS inspector general's office began a review last week to determine if Price complied with federal travel regulations, which generally require officials to minimize costs.

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. Jamie Raskin (Maryland), and Pramila Jayapal (Washington) - accused Price of violating the American public's trust through the use of corporate-style jets to whisk him around the country.

According to a former Obama administration official who is in close touch multiple Health and Human Services officials in the building, there has been growing frustration with each new report of Price's private charter plane use.

Democrats also pounced, with former colleagues in the Congress calling for Price's resignation.

Asked if he has confidence in Price, Johnson went to speak, then stopped himself and walked away. "Not everybody can lease a plane like that and fly around the country".
