Price is also pledging to fly commercial with "no exceptions" as he fights to keep his job. "I am here just for this reason", Cohn told reporters at the White House on Thursday, explaining that he set aside concerns about his boss saying that a group of people containing actual Nazis had some "very fine" people among it in order to participate in the "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to work on tax reform.

Price has frequently criticized government waste since his appointment as health secretary and during his tenure in the House of Representatives, where he once chaired the House Budget Committee. House Democrats, who requested the inspector general's involvement, have said Price's flights appeared to violate federal law meant to ensure that executive branch officials use the most economical travel available. "They're conducting both an internal and an IG full review". She says while charter jets might sometimes be justified to reach remote locations or make multiple stops, most government officials get by traveling coach.

Price said Thursday he would reimburse the USA government for the cost of his private air travel, though not for the full cost of chartering the planes, which ran into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In an embarrassment to the administration, it was recently disclosed that Price has been taking unprecedented numbers of chartered flights under the auspices of his duties as HHS Secretary.

Now, as rumors swirl of President Trump's profound unhappiness with his subordinate, Tom Price would like you to know that he is. President Donald Trump refused to rule out firing Price when he was asked about the matter September 27, commenting, "We'll see". I am not happy with it.

"As the president said yesterday, he's not happy with the actions", she added. Democratic and Republican senators have also demanded information about Price's travel expenditures.

"We'll see", he told reporters.

After news emerged of his own travel, Price's aides first said the trips were necessary because of his demanding schedule and to visit areas where transportation was complicated due to hurricane damage. The EPA's inspector general is now looking into Pruitt's travels.

Responding to the disclosures, Trump said, "I am not happy about it".

On a June trip to Nashville, Price also had lunch with his son, who lives in that city, according to Politico.

President Donald Trump hasn't taken this news lightly and said "we'll see" when asked if he would fire Price as a result. Pelosi would often take flights between Washington and California in military aircrafts. But they noted the White House would not need to sign off except in cases where an official requested use of a military aircraft. "We're looking at the issue".

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) demanded an explanation for Price's travel costs, and Sen.

Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin got asked about the jet issue Thursday at the Washington Ideas Forum in Washington. Mnuchin is now the subject of an inquiry over the use of a government plane to take him and his wife to Europe for their honeymoon. We're going to have an IG audit.
