It constantly amazes me how much Donald Trump is able to get away with!
With the most recent FEC report, we have learned that once again, Trump’s campaign donations are going right back to Trump and his businesses.
And now we have discovered that the U.S. Secret Service paid Trump’s campaign $1.6 million to cover the costs of flying agents charged with protecting the Republican presidential candidate on his company’s plane.
While it’s a long-accepted practice for the agency, which has also reimbursed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign $2.6 million, the payment to Trump’s campaign was unusual because the plane was owned by TAG Air, owned by Trump, Politico reported.
That means that the U.S. government was effectively paying Trump to protect him.
Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said via email, “Everything was done as required by the FEC,” referring to the Federal Election Commission.
Will anyone ever hold Trump accountable? Can you imagine if this happened with Hillary instead?
