    A senior figure in US President Donald Trump's cabinet is fighting for his political future after a scandal over his use of private jets.

    Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price could be dismissed after it was revealed that taxpayers will have to foot bills of almost $1m for his trips.

    He is not the only top politician facing questions over their travel.
