Former Health Secretary: Price's use of chartered flights is 'stunning'

Politico: Price Visited Family Members, Longtime Friends On Private Jet Trips

HHS Tom Price chartered government-funded jets to places he owns property: report

A group of Democrats is calling on Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price to resign because he has opted to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on private jets this year.

The President said he's "not happy" with Price over those flights and told reporters that he'll "look at it". Trump said "I'm not happy about it and I let him know it".

Asked whether he's planning on firing Price, Trump responded: "We'll see".

Price has taken as many as 24 private flights in the past few months, costing the government an estimated $300,000.

Uber CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi has issued an apology to Londoners following the decision by TfL to not renew its license in the city. Around one in four (23 per cent) said the drivers were "more pleasant" while 26 per cent felt safer in an Uber vehicle .

Officials said Price is cooperating fully with the inspector general's probe and will stop using charter flights until that investigation is complete.

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 committee sent a letter to Price asking that he "identify each usage of a private, non-commercial aircraft by a non-career official" by October 10.

Trump added: "I am not happy about it". On a June trip to Nashville, Price also had lunch with his son, who lives in that city, according to Politico.

Walker said: "To play against he is a nightmare". 'Facing him for numerous seasons, he always seemed to score against us. Anything below par and he will be one of the first to say "come on, this isn't right, let's pick it up".

Asked Wednesday whether he has confidence in Price, Trump declined to offer a clear answer, saying only that he is "looking into it". Politico found that since May, Price has taken 26 flights on corporate jets, and in several cases, there were commercial flights available to his destinations.

"I'm not going to comment on that because the President hasn't commented publicly", Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House adviser, told reporters. Sebelius said in an interview with Bloomberg that when she served as secretary HHS officials were required to fly economy for all trips that were shorter than 12 hours.

Last week, when stories first emerged about travel by Price on charter flights, officials at the Department of Health and Human Services defended his decision to take private jets instead of commercial flights.

Trump's displeasure with Price could also stem from the GOP's failed attempts to replace Obamacare.
