Kellyanne Conway Just Lost Her Secret Service Protection

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway has ditched her Secret Service detail. Someone in Conway's position would not normally receive protection, but President Trump approved it after several threats. 

On the same day, Donald Trump Jr. also gave up his protection, allegedly due to privacy concerns.


People are wondering why Kellyanne and Junior both opted to lose their protection:

Secret Service Director Randolph Alles admitted his agency was nearing its spending limit for protecting the President and his family. At least 1,000 agents have already reached their federal salary caps and overtime payment limits for the year. There are reportedly 42 protected members in this administration, compared to 31 in Obama's.
