The White Hosue is reporting that Secret Service has apprehended a man who got passed their perimeter.
PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The White House said Saturday that an individual was apprehended after jumping a low metal barrier just outside the White House fence, a week after an intrusion raised questions about lapses in security under the watch of the U.S. Secret Service.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer wrote on Twitter that the individual “jumped bike rack on Pennsylvania Ave” but did not make it onto White House property.
Spicer added, “Great response by @SecretService.”
President Donald Trump was not at the White House on Saturday. He and his family are spending the weekend at his Palm Beach, Florida, resort.
The Secret Service did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
It’s time to move the President to a more secure location. With the divisive political environment and deep state conspiracies, it doesn’t seem safe.
