The billionaire businessman has been assigned the name “Mogul,” according to Ed Henry, Fox News' chief White House correspondent. Trump's detail reports for the first time Wednesday.

Both Trump and fellow GOP frontrunner Ben Carson were assigned Secret Service details last week, authorized by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Carson has been assigned the name “Eli,” a reference to the biblical figure, reported Henry.
