Friday around midnight an intruder was arrested by the Secret Service on White House Property while President Trump was inside. The intruder almost gained access to the south entrance.
This incident lead the White House to be placed under one of the highest security conditions possible for the Secret Service, “orange”.
The man was caught with a backpack and thoroughly searched, but fortunately no hazardous items were found.
It appears that there was no harmful intent, but he just desired to have a conversation with Mr. President.
Intruder quoted, “I am a friend of the president. I have an appointment and I jumped the fence.”
Since the intruder was able to get in far enough, the Secret Service will be looking at adjusting security precautions.
Investigations are still occurring Saturday.
