HHS Sec. Tom Price On Private Flight Scandal: "Previous Administrations Had Secretaries Who Flew An Awful Lot"


Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price explains his use of chartered flights for government business and responds to White House's noncommittal response to question on Price's future.

"I continue to work [with President Trump]... As he has said publicly, he wasn't happy, and he expressed that to me very clearly," Price said.

"All of these trips were business, all of these trips were within budget, all of them were approved by the normal process," Price explained. "We've heard the concerns and criticisms, and in order to make certain that people appreciate my respect for the taxpayer is as strong as it can be... There will be no private air charters at HHS going forward... and finally to pay for my portion of the trips. This is unprecedented."

"Despite the fact that previous administrations had secretaries that flew an awful lot," he added.
