Meet America's first family
Washington CNN  — 

Donald Trump Jr.’s Secret Service protection has been reactivated, sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

The President’s son had previously requested his protection be scaled back, seeking more privacy.

By law, as an immediate family member of President Donald Trump, his son is authorized, but not required, to have protection.

It is not clear what prompted the move.

Previously, Trump Jr. had also requested to travel without protection during a family trip in June, which the Secret Service reluctantly approved.

Two sources who spoke on condition of anonymity previously told CNN that the Secret Service strongly pushed back on his request, but said it was “demanded” by Trump Jr. himself.

The Secret Service detail has been restored to what it was before, the sources said.
