Security is always of the utmost importance when it comes to the President of the United States.
After there was a security breach on Friday night, President Trump's safety has been a topic of interest.
According to CNN: "A man carrying a backpack with mace and a letter for President Donald Trump was arrested Friday night after he breached security at the White House complex and was discovered by a Secret Service officer near the south entrance to the executive residence, officials said."
When the suspect was questioned he said he jumped the fence in order to get on the White House grounds. He said he was a "friend" of President Trump and had an appointment.
After Friday night's incident, a former secret service agent is making a bold statement. Dan Bongino, an agent who worked for both the Obama and Bush administrations, cautioned that President Trump "is not secure in the White House right now as it stands."
Bongino also went on the say that the secret service is not prepared to defend the White House and feels that there should be tighter security around the premises. He also suggested:
“They need to fix the fence. Reinforce the manpower on the north and the south grounds. Add special weapons teams. Get the best technology in there right now. Clearly, the technology sensors and cameras are not working as planned. Get them in there yesterday. There’s no other solution.”
With so much turmoil surrounding our President, we must continue to pray for his safety and for his family's safety!
