Mnuchin eclipses earlier backlash with pricey request: European
honeymoon by military jet

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin requested a military jet to fly him
and his wife, Louise Linton, to their European honeymoon this summer,
raising questions again about the wealthy couple's use of government
aircraft.
....
....
The department withdrew its request "after a secure communications
option was identified during the Secretary's extended travel."

An Air Force spokesman told ABC News, which first reported the story,
that the jet would cost $25,000 an hour to operate, though it is
unclear if that included costs like maintenance and fuel. Government
workers and troops on travel typically accrue costs for food and
lodging.
