Donald Trump Jr. Reportedly Giving Up Secret Service Protection, Citing Privacy Concerns

There are reports tonight that Donald Trump Jr. is giving up his Secret Service protection.

The New York Times reports that President Trump‘s son “has elected to forgo protection by the Secret Service” and privacy is a reason why:

The agency ceased protecting Mr. Trump, who lives in New York City and is an executive at the Trump Organization, last week. Mr. Trump, an avid camper and hunter, is said to be seeking more privacy than he can expect with a contingent of agents accompanying him everywhere.

CNN’s report also adds, “The family has expressed a desire for more privacy and personal space, one of the sources said.”

And after that report broke, CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted this:
