At the time, Mnuchin had been out of office for five months. But, because of an order given by President Donald Trump, he was still entitled to protection by Secret Service agents. As agents followed Mnuchin across the Middle East, the U.S. government paid up to $3,000 each for their plane tickets, and $11,000 for rooms at Qatar's luxe St. Regis Doha, according to government spending records. In all, the records show U.S. taxpayers spent more than $52,000 to guard a multimillionaire on a business trip. These payments were among $1.7 million in additional government spending triggered by Trump's highly unusual order " which awarded six extra months of Secret Service protection for his four adult children and three top administration officials " according to a Washington Post analysis of new spending documents.
