Army members investigated for misbehaviour during Trump trip

November 22, 2017 - 6:16 AM

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon says it is investigating allegations of misbehaviour by three service members during President Donald Trump's trip to Asia earlier this month.

The Washington Post reports that the Army personnel are under investigations for claims they broke curfew and had improper contact with foreign women during Trump's stop in Vietnam.

Chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W. White has confirmed to The Associated Press that "the incident is under investigation."

The Post reports that the Army noncommissioned officers worked for the White House Communications Agency, which helps ensure that the president and other officials have secure communications systems. The three service members, who have been reassigned, could lose their security clearances and face other disciplinary actions.
