Exclusive: Secret Service depletes funds to pay agents because of Trump's frequent travel, large family
Kevin Johnson, USA TODAY Published 5:00 a.m. ET Aug. 21, 2017

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump's family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.

The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it has not relented in the first seven months of the administration. Agents must protect Trump – who has traveled almost every weekend to his properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia – and his adult children whose business trips and vacations have taken them across the country and overseas.

So, only protect the 3 in the WH. DT biz by the kids is a huge conflict of interest since he profits from it.

I also hear from multiple sources that Secret Service agents are at the end of their rope, sick of being treated like servants by Trump.

Looks like the repubs will have to reset the Secret Service budget, or tell Trump that his home is the White House and have everyone stay there. Either way, the repubs are at fault for not being the "good" fiscal stewards they claim to be...as usual. Rolleyes

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.
