The Secret Service revealed Donald Trump's code name


If you get as close to the White House, even as the losing candidate, you get a Secret Service detail. That also means that you get a code name.

And who doesn't want a codename? Who hasn't played spy with a few friends and hasn't tried contacting 'shadow' over a pair of $5 walkie talkies? Code names are just cool.

Which is why if a Secret Service agent lets slip the President-elect's code name, people are interested. What's Trump's code name? 

"Mogul," reports CNN.  

It's a little on the nose, but appropriate nonetheless.

The other thing about Secret Service code names is that the code names of members of the same family begin with the same letter. For instance, Barack Obama is "Renegade" and Michelle Obama is "Renaissance." 

Which is part of the reason why Melania Trump, a former model, is code named "Muse." 

Vice President-elect Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, also received code names. 

Pence, the governor of the Hoosier State, is known as "Hoosier." Again, pretty straightforward. 

Mrs. Pence, on the other hand, has chosen a less obvious code name, opting for "Hummingbird." 

As a former president and a former first lady, Bill and Hillary Clinton also have code names. 

Bill Clinton is "Eagle." Pretty standard for a president. 

Hillary Clinton is "Evergreen." 

The Secret Service have not let slip Tim Kaine's code name.
