    Actually, they kinda are. They have already hit the spending limit on their budget and we're only halfway through the year.

    Secret Service out of money to pay agents because of Trump's frequent travel, large family

    WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer afford to pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump's family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.


    Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex'' Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said 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 agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it has not relented in the first seven months of the administration. Agents must protect Trump – who has traveled almost every weekend to his properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia – and his adult children whose business trips and vacations have taken them across the country and overseas.

    That's a helluva water hazard.

    I'd go with a 5-iron.

    No, I spoke sloppily. The funds allocated to protect the President, though, are used up.

    Yep, they used up their years budget in only 7 months. But, I suppose that if Trump could convince Congress that he needed the security, they could raise the spending limit for his security.

    But, that might cause a large problem for the GOP who is interested in cutting down on costs.
