Report: Secret Service Ran Out of Money to Pay Agents Because of Trump’s Travels
The Secret Service cannot pay more than 1,000 of its agents anymore because the agency has already hit its federally mandated yearly salary and overtime cap, USA Today reported Monday. President Trump’s large family and frequent traveling has created an especially heavy workload for the agency. Under the Trump administration, the agency is trusted with protecting 42 people, including 18 members of the Trump family. This is up from the 31 people protected under the Obama administration. The agency is also taxed by Trump’s frequent weekend trips to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach and his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
