The Secret Service can no longer afford to pay agents due to the sheer size of President Trump's family and the need to secure their multiple residences. Alles said the service is grappling with an unprecedented number of White House protectees. Under Trump, 42 people have protection, a number that includes 18 members of his family. That's up from 31 during the Obama administration. Overwork and constant travel has also been driving a recent exodus from the Secret Service ranks, yet without congressional intervention to provide additional funding, Alles will not even be able pay agents for the work they have already done. The president's jaunts to Mar-a-Lago are estimated to cost at least $3 million each.
