Donald Trump at high risk of terror attack on White House?

A former Secret Service agent, who had guarded previous US presidents has made a shocking claim about the current President of United States, Donald Trump.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino revealed in a PTI report that Donald Trump is not safe inside the White House and even the Secret Service would not be able to save him during a terror attack.

The statement comes only a week after the arrest of a man who jumped the White House fence and roamed around for over 15 minutes. “The intruder set off multiple alarms, alarms that clearly showed someone breached the property, and he was seen by officers who didn’t think anything of it. This is a big story,” Dan Bongino was quoted as saying by the Fox News.

Dan Bongino, according to the PTI report, had earlier guarded former Barack Obama and George W Bush. “That just shows the president is not safe there – in the White House. The Secret Service does not have the assets, they don’t have personnel on the ground they need to keep him safe,” he said.

“The Secret Service cannot even keep one person off the grounds – what will they do if 40 terrorists charge the White House? And believe me the terrorists are already thinking about that,” Bongino further added.

In a statement, the Secret Service said Jonathan T Tran, 26, of California was seen crossing the White House Fence, and Donald Trump was at his residence at the time. Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, hit out at the Secret Service over the incident.

“Tran may have attempted entry into the building. If true, these allegations raise questions about whether the agency’s security protocols are adequate,” he alleged.

“It was complete and utter total failures. The White House is probably the most targeted place on the face of the planet. We spend billions of dollars to secure it,” he further told CNN.
