One has to wonder exactly what security people are doing at the White House at times that people are still able to get through. If you ever walk out near Pennsylvania Avenue, it seems as though it would be impossible to get past security but it keeps happening and now it has with Trump in the White House.
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.
The suspect was arrested by the Secret Service and taken into custody.
The President was spending the weekend in Washington and was alerted to the incident late Friday night, an administration official said.
That’s all that is known for now. RedState will provide updates as more information comes in.
