Trump's children brought Secret Service money to the family business with their visits, records show

Eric Trump took his Secret Service agents to Trump golf courses in Scotland, as he led transatlantic tours for paying customers. Donald Trump Jr. took his protectors to the Trump hotel in Vancouver, stopping over on hunting trips to Canada.

And Ivanka Trump took her Secret Service detail to the Trump golf club in Bedminster, N.J., again and again -- even after she asked other Americans to "please, please" stay home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump Spawn Funnel US Money Into Daddy's Pocket

And in three weeks we can end this grifting:

Eric Trump took his Secret Service agents to Trump golf courses in Scotland, as he led transatlantic tours for paying customers. Donald Trump Jr. took his protectors to the Trump hotel in Vancouver, stopping over on hunting trips to Canada. And Ivanka Trump took her Secret Service detail to the Trump golf club in Bedminster, N.J., again and again -- even after she asked other Americans to "please, please" stay home during the coronavirus pandemic.

On trips like these, Secret Service agents were there to protect Trump's children. But, for the Trump family business, their visits also brought a hidden side benefit. Money. That's because when Trump's adult children visited Trump properties, Trump's company charged the Secret Service for agents to come along. The president's company billed the U.S. government hundreds, or thousands, of dollars for rooms agents used on each trip.

3. The title should read

"Trump Profited from Secret Service Trips to Family Businesses."
I may be old and fussy, but I am tried of major newspaper titles with grammatically poor headlines.
