Friday, health and human services secretary Tom Price submitted his letter of resignation.
His resignation comes amid growing backlash as Price accrued a bill of at least $400,000 and upwards into $1 million of taxpayers dollars in travel expenses since joining the cabinet in January.
Price offered to reimburse taxpayers for the price of his seat, but that only came to about $51,887 which the president called “unacceptable”
Following Prices resignation, All cabinet travel requests must now be cleared by the White House.
Don J. Wright, a deputy assistant secretary, is the acting secretary.
