It is clear that there are many malicious people out there who love to cause harm to President Trump. Although online threats are becoming common, one man, in a very shocking and disturbing incident, decided to go physically after Trump at the White House
The Freedom Daily reported:
On Friday, at almost midnight, Secret Officer spotted something completely out of the norm, after noticing a man walking across White House grounds in a restricted area. The 26-year-old California man somehow managed to jump the perimeter fence, sending the White House into immediate lock-down, where the President and his family were immediately rushed to safety. Security immediately swarmed the scene, where Jonathan Tran, 26, of Milpitas, Calif., was arrested charged with unlawful entry.
During the incident, President Trump was at the White House along with his family. They were all rushed to safety until authorities cleared the area. Later Trump congratulated the team of secret service for the “fantastic job”. Reports indicate that the man was on the White House grounds shortly before midnight.
When the threat was neutralized, the White House was placed on “Orange Alert,” which is one of the highest states of readiness for the Secret Service.
The Secret Service said the incident occurred at about 11:38 p.m. when the man, who was carrying a backpack, scaled an outer perimeter fence by the Treasury Building and East Executive Avenue. The report stated that the man began to walk away as the officer walked toward him. When asked if he was holding an authorized pass, the suspect replied: “No, I am a friend of the president. I have an appointment.”
Asked how he got there, the suspect, according to the report, told the officer, “I jumped the fence.” The report said security footage showed the suspect jumping the northwest courtyard fence of the Treasury building in a restricted area.
