Donald Trump Jr. is back under Secret Service protection a week after he demanded more privacy.


The Secret Service strongly pushed back on his request last week, and the protective detail was restored to its previous status, two sources told CNN.

The president's immediate family is authorized to receive protection, but relatives aren't required to use it.

Trump Jr. "demanded" an end to his family's Secret Service, but it's not clear why he made the request or why it was denied.

The president's eldest son previously asked to travel without Secret Service protection during a family trip in June, which the agency reluctantly approved.
