THE PRICE IS NOT RIGHT: Trump fuming over Price’s charter flights.
Trump rebuked Price in sharp terms Wednesday but declined to bat down speculation that the HHS chief could be fired for his lavish spending of taxpayer dollars.
“We’ll see,” the president told reporters when asked whether Price would stay in his job.
“I was looking into it, and I will look into it. And I will tell you personally, I’m not happy about it,” Trump said. “I am not happy about it. I’m going to look at it. I am not happy about it, and I let him know it.”
POLITICO has revealed that Price has flown 26 times on private aircraft since last May at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars, a break with the practice of his predecessors, who generally took commercial flights.
Meanwhile, Washington is expedited to run a non-recession budget deficit of $674 billion on record tax receipts.
