Announcement Date: August 21, 2017

USA Today reported that the Secret Service is running out of its annual funding, partially due to the president’s frequent trips to his business properties with his family. The agency’s director said that 1,000 Secret Service agents have already reached their annual salary and overtime limits. The agency has already spent more than $6.6 million in taxpayer money protecting Mar-a-Lago so far this year. Each trip costs taxpayers roughly $1 million.
