Some Secret Service codenames make sense. But not all do like Jared Kushner’s, which is  “Mechanic.” Don’t expect that guy to look under your car’s hood.

Other names seem more fitting, according to according to the website, Bustle.

The president’s codename is “Mogul.” Son Donald Trump Jr. is called “Mountaineer.” Eric Trump’s codename is “Marksman.” And Mike Pence is called “Hoosier.”

Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, used $97,830 in taxes to put Secret Service and embassy staffers in hotel rooms while on a business trip to Uruguay.

Eric Trump was visiting the South American country to bolster the Trump Organization before the president’s Jan. 2o inauguration, the Washington Post reports.

The cost to taxpayers has raised serious questions about the president’s pledge to keep his businesses separate from his presidency.

The Secret Service’s hotel bills totaled $88,320.

The Post reported:

The Uruguayan trip shows how the government is unavoidably entangled with the Trump company as a result of the president’s refusal to divest his ownership stake. In this case, government agencies are forced to pay to support business operations that ultimately help to enrich the president himself. Though the Trumps have pledged a division of business and government, they will nevertheless depend on the publicly funded protection granted to the first family as they travel the globe promoting their brand.
