Trump Kids’ Aspen Ski Trip Cost Taxpayers At Least $330K In Security: CBS Report




President Trump’s adult children left taxpayers on the hook for at least $330,000 in security costs on a ski trip to Aspen, Colo., last March, according to CBS News.

The annual Aspen ski vacation taken in March by President Trump’s children, Ivanka and Eric Trump, and their families, including son-in-law Jared Kushner, left taxpayers on the hook for security costs of at least $330,000, CBS News has learned.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spent $329,561 for the week-long vacation by President Trump’s children, Ivanka and Eric Trump, and their families, including son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to records obtained by CBS News through a Freedom of Information Act.

The Secret Service spent $26,000 on rental vehicles, as well as equipment needed to accompany the family on the ski slopes, which cost around $22,000.

The report comes amid fresh scrutiny of travel records by members of the Trump administration.

Health and Human Services Secretary (HHS) Tom Price submitted his resignation to President Trump on Friday after facing backlash for his use of private jets for official business.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt are also facing questions about their use of private aircraft for government business.
