The Secret Service spent $7,100 to rent high-end portable restrooms during President Trump's 17-day "working vacation" at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., according to a report.
A contract with Imperial Restrooms signed by the Secret Service indicates the company was initially to provide the restroom trailers on Aug. 3, according to purchase orders flagged by the Democratic opposition research firm American Bridge and reviewed by USA Today.
The contract was then updated a week later, showing the Secret Service spent $7,100 on the portable restroom rentals from Aug. 3 to Aug. 21.
In addition to renting portable restrooms, the Secret Service has also spent $13,500 on golf cart rentals for Trump's August "working vacation."
Trump has spent nearly every weekend since his inauguration at properties he owns up and down the East Coast, including his golf club in Bedminster and his Florida property, Mar-a-Lago.
Because the Secret Service is prohibited from accepting funding or resources that haven't been appropriated by Congress, such as hotel rooms, the agency has to pay its own way at Trump-owned properties.
The Secret Service's budget is undergoing a higher level of scrutiny this week after Director Randolph "Tex" Alles" told USA Today more than 1,000 agents reached salary and overtime allowances intended to last the year, attributed in part to the president's frequent travel and his large family, who require Secret Service protection.
Alles is working with Congress to lift the compensation caps to ensure those who have continued to work overtime are paid for it.
