The US Health Secretary Resigns Over Private Flights

CNBC.com

The health and human services secretary Tom Price has resigned, after revelations that he spent more than $1m of taxpayers’ money on travel including chartered flights, The Guardian informs.

In statement on Friday, the White House said Price offered his resignation and Trump accepted it. Trump had teased the news, telling reporters an announcement was forthcoming.

Trump called Price a "very fine man" but said he did not like the "optics" of members of his cabinet – the wealthiest ever assembled – flying at great expense to taxpayers.
