Inarguably, Donald Trump will be one of the most difficult Presidents for the Secret Service to protect in modern history.
Not only is Trump an affable and friendly man who will go out of his way to bring supporters onstage with him, but there is a massive and disturbing undercurrent of liberal angst in this country at the moment. The political left has already been the subject of countless concerns for the safety not only of the President, but of law-abiding Americans everywhere, as riots and violent protests seem to have a way of blossoming anywhere.
Now we are learning of a massive security incident that took place at the White House on Friday night while the President was on-site.
“A man carrying a backpack was arrested Friday night after breaching security at the White House complex and was discovered by a Secret Service officer by the south entrance to the executive residence, officials said.
“The incident happened just before midnight while President Donald Trump was at the White House.
“A Secret Service source said the intruder might have entered the White House grounds on the east side before making his way near the residence’s south portico entrance.
“The White House was placed under security condition ‘orange,’ one of the highest levels of security for the Secret Service.”
While the Secret Service is certainly running thin due to the abundance of online death threats to the President, and the need to protect multiple facilities in multiple cities at once, it is absolutely terrifying that this man was allowed to gain access to the areas that he did without being molested by a single Secret Service agent prior to his arrest.
