US Secret Service is in huge trouble because of Donald Trump
Donald Trump’s reckless travels to his personal resorts and Golf Courses have put US Secret services into huge financial Trouble. Secret Service Paid President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort at least $63,000 over the course of several months.
According to the CNN report that the majority of the payments happened between February and April,.On government expense forms, these costs were seen as hotel costs and range from $1,300 to $11,050.
Report did not specify the purpose f the money! but the money could have been used for rooms agents rented or for space that was leased.
President Trump frequently visited his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla. in the months after his inauguration. It has attracted criticism from different corners but President termed the reports as Fake news and insisted that he is there for meetings .
CNN Further reports that some of the payments from Secret Service appear to be at the same time that Trump was at his club.Critics say that the payments from Secret Service could violate the emoluments clause.
George W Bush’s Former ethics lawyer told CNN “The president risks violating the domestic emoluments clause if his company is making money off of the Secret Service,” “To avoid that, Mar-a-Lago should either charge Secret Service a rate federal employees are authorized to pay for a hotel room under ordinary circumstances or not charge at all.”
President Trump has long faced scrutiny over his connections to his family business. A report from the last month shows that the government paid more than $1,000 for one of the Trump official to stay at Mar-a-Lago.
