The secret service tasked with President Trump’s protection need to be more alert than ever. Dan Bongino, a former secret service agent from George W. Bush and Obama’s administration spoke out about the dangers President Trump is in. The former security agent discussed the new administration when he spoke to Breitbart in an interview. He argued that as it now stands for safety purposes, the White House is not secure.
Besides being an instructor at the training academy for secret service, Bingino served as an agent. His comments came just after an intruder with a backpack was found outside the President’s personal quarters.
The Freedom Daily reports:
The intruder incident is the seventh one in most recent years. Bongino said,
“If one guy with a backpack and Omar Gonzales with a bad knee could get near the residence of the White House, can you tell me with a straight face that a forty-man tactical assault team with heavy weapons wouldn’t take that place down?”
The incident he was referring to was in 2014 when a man was able to penetrate the north portico doors of the premises and then carried over a three and a half inch folding knife with him in his back pocket. He said,
“This is inexcusable. How many of these are we, as the citizenry, going to tolerate, whether under Barack Obama or now President Trump, before there is enough citizen outrage that the Secret Service actually does something?”
With the increase in protesting and rioted violence, there is no excuse for security to be lax for the commander in chief of the United States. Since Trump has gotten used to making former Obama era people resign he should certainly force these inept agents to resign as well and bring in people who can do their job.
