President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, USA Today reports. Price was under pressure for the use of chartered planes, which racked up approximately $1 million in flight costs at taxpayer expense, and the president publicly expressed his disapproval. “I’m not happy, I can tell you,” Trump said earlier today. “I certainly don’t like the optics.” Don Wright, deputy assistant secretary for Health and Director of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, will serve as acting HHS secretary.
