HHS Secretary Tom Price has come under fire for his abuse of taxpayer-funded private jets. According to Politico, Price used private jets for personal business, including a lunch with his son.

On June 6, HHS chartered a jet to fly Price to Nashville, Tennessee, where he owns a condominium and where his son resides. Price toured a medicine dispensary and spoke to a local health summit organized by a longtime friend. He also had lunch with his son, an HHS official confirmed.

When asked about the controversy, President Trump said:

“I will tell you personally, I’m not happy about it. I am not happy about it, and I’m going to look at it. I let him know it.”

But not everything thinks Tom Price's use of private jets is such a big deal. He is a high-ranking governmental official after all, and needs to be protected. Erick Erickson said on "Fox & Friends":

This is the man, the secretary of Health and Human Services, who would oversee repeal of Obamacare. Imagine the death threats he's getting right now... Tom Price needs to be protected.

Some argue it's totally normal for U.S. officials to use private planes for travel.

And others point out the hypocrisy of Trump getting mad at Price when he has also abused taxpayer dollars on his own personal travel.
