superior court judge quentin kopp. he alleges donald trump, jr. is taking the american people for a ride waving taxpayer money by traveling to india on -- wasting taxpayer money by traveling to india on business bringing secret service with him. >> they're tricksters in my book doing it under the guise of meeting on an issue of the state. >> it dominated the news cycle when donald trump, jr. traveled to india to meet with dignitaries and promote the trump hotel brand. that's when kopp filed a freedom of information request hoping to learn how much money was spent to protect donald trump, jr. >> he seems he has a good argument on getting the information. >> kpix5 political reporter melissa caen who is a lawyer says kopp is likely to get
6:01 pm
those numbers, but connecting it to wasted taxpayer money may prove challenging. >> the truth is donald trump, jr. is entitled to that detail and it's not clear that that secret service protection is what contributed to business success in india. >> reporter: the children of all sitting presidents are entitled to secret service detail, but in the past they've been children. kopp argues donald trump, jr. is using this as a loophole that's proving lucrative for the trump brand. >> even though children of a president are entitled to secret service protection, junior is not a child. >> judge kopp said this is likely the first of many lawsuits. next he plans to ask the trump family to pay taxpayers back for public money used on this and other international trips. >> thanks, susie. new at 6:00 a bay area man gets a surprise phone call from the director of the dmv. she tells him his new license

6:03 pm
directed not to accept real ids without a suppntcation. >> reporter: the thing is roy did apply for a new real id driver's license and the dmv did send him a real id, but it was just an id, not a driver's license. roy thinks the mistake probably happened because dmv workers were still learning how to process the new federally required ids. >> nobody was really sure what real id was back in january. >> reporter: at dmv? >> at the dmv and as a citizen. >> reporter: in fact, the dmv is blaming unreasonable wait times at its offices on the new id applications. last week the director asked for $26 million on top of millions that had already gone to hire more staff. four days later she was on the phone with roy personally admitting to him they'd made a mistake and would correct it as soon as possible. >> this morning about 10:00 i got a special delivery of a temporary driver's license. >> reporter: and to help expedite those long lines at

6:06 pm
do you regret saying them? >> i think whenever you have said something that becomes such a hot button, you wish you had said it differently. >> reporter: in the following two weeks the mayor received dozens of e-mails and phone calls, some calling for her resignation, others calling her woefully ignorant. yesterday she apologized. >> i made an apology. i said i certainly misunderstood how incredibly impacted the traffic was in certain parts of town. so i made it and i stand by it. >> reporter: apology accepted? >> yes. >> reporter: why? >> because anyone can make a mistake. >> reporter: john gizlan is a member of the crescent park neighborhood association and sees some of the worst traffic by right by his home on middle neil road. he said after downplaying the -- middlefield road. he said after downplaying the traffic and then saying sorry, the expectations are high. do you think it's water under the bridge? >> yes and no. i think people expect her to step up now and work on real
