How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Trump’s & His Family’s Vacation Habits Are Draining Secret Service Budget

President Trump’s large family and their habit of traveling to several residences on the East Coast have left the Secret Service without enough money to pay hundreds of agents. 

The agency has already exceeded its annual caps for salary and overtime for more than 1,000 agents, with more than three months left before the budget is replenished, Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles told the USA Today. 

In the first seven months, the Secret Service has depleted its budget because of weekend trips to Trump’s properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia and his adult children’s frequent business trips and vacation across the country and world.

“The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,” Alles said. “I can’t change that. I have no flexibility.”

Under the Obama administration, Secret Service agents protected 31 people. That number has increased to 42 people under Trump.
