Critics question why the Secret Service spent thousands at a Trump hotel

Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, flew to Canada in 2017 for one of his regular visits to the Yukon mountains to hunt stone sheep with friends. He was accompanied by Secret Service agents on that trip, just as he had been since his father was sworn in as president six months earlier. The Secret Service is required to protect the president’s children, but the tendency of Trump and his family to funnel funds to their own properties has complicated what had been a routine practice. Critics say the Trumps are using the presidency to boost the president's businesses by forcing the federal government to spend taxpayer money at Trump properties.
