WASHINGTON – Three members of the military team that traveled to Asia with President Donald Trump have been reassigned due to “improper contact with foreign women” during the visit in Vietnam, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.
The three Army soldiers joined the tour as members of a special unit providing secure communications for the president, vice president and Secret Service.
Pentagon spokesman Mark Wright told The Washington Post that the case was “under investigation.”
The three men were part of the same unit from which four other soldiers were separated last August after taking women to their hotel in Panama during Vice President Mike Pence’s Latin American tour.
In early November, Trump went on a 12-day tour of Asia with stops in Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines.
In 2012, eight Secret Service advance team members sent to Colombia ahead of a visit by former President Barack Obama lost their jobs after taking several prostitutes from a strip club to their hotel rooms.
