A security breach has left the White House wondering how to better secure the facility. An intruder made it to the actual door of the White House with a backpack, before being caught.
New reports also detail the suspect, 26-year-old Jonathan Tran, was on the premise for nearly 15 minutes before being apprehended.
According to CNN, "video footage shows Tran first jumping a fence in the Northwest corner of the Treasury Building, immediately adjacent to the White House. Tran activated a sensor alarm in the Treasury Moat, the source said. Secret Service officers responded to the alarm, but Tran had already snuck beyond one Secret Service post and moved closer to the White House when an officer came to investigate. The source believes Tran then crossed over the East Executive Drive and jumped the White House gate near an East Wing guard post that is not routinely staffed. The source said Tran activated an alarm sensor, but was hiding behind a pillar of the East Wing entrance. The source said Tran then jumped a low wall before traversing along East Wing. Several sensors went off, but it is unclear if they were properly investigated. The president was inside the White House during that incident."

Do you think the White House should be more secure? Do you feel President Trump is truly safe inside or is the security inadequate?
