Well, here’s a shocker. Not. The Secret Service is running out of funds to pay their agents due to Donald Trump’s constant travel and his huge family. Details inside…

We’re not financial advisors by a long shot, but we’re not surprised to read this news.

The Secret Service is reportedly running out of money to pay hundreds of agents due to Donald Trump’s excessive travel and his large family. So much money is being used to carry out an expanded protective mission, which includes protecting Trump’s family and securing their multiple residences up and down the east coast.

Not only that, Trump’s excessive travel arrangements are putting a serious strain on the Secret Service’s budget. Trump has traveled almost every weekend to several of his properties in Florida, NJ and Virginia. Meanwhile, his adult children take several business trips and vacations where they’ll go all across the country and overseas.

Under Trump, the Secret Service is protecting 42 people, 18 of which are family members. There were 31 people needing protection under the Obama administration.

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles told USA Today that more “than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.”

"The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,'' Tex said. "I can't change that. I have no flexibility.''

Money is SO tight that some agents who have already logged in tons of hours won’t be able to get paid for it. Now, the Secret Service is asking Congress to raise the combined salary and overtime cap for agents, from $160,000 to $187,000 for at least the duration of Trump’s first term.

Is this making American citizen’s tax dollars great again?
