Intruder Breaches The White House Grounds With Backpack

Intruder Breaches The White House Grounds With Backpack

The National Capital Planning Commission recently approved plans for the Secret Service to install a stronger and higher perimeter fence around the White House.

It's reported an intruder has been arrested after entering the White House - while President Trump was inside. The name of the suspect, who was arrested by uniformed Secret Service, was not released. The individual carried a backpack, which was found to not contain any hazardous materials.

Neither the Secret Service nor the White House responded immediately to a request for further details.

The Associated Press reported that President Trump was in the White House at the time.


The president, who is spending the weekend in Washington, was alerted late on Friday. Secret Service agents informed that nothing suspicious was found while searching the premises.

The officer asked Tran how he got onto the grounds and he allegedly said, "I jumped the fence". Secret Service officials said the Republican President was not in any danger.

On September 11, a man scaled the White House fence and was apprehended quickly on the North Lawn. Trump was in the White House at the time of the intrusion.

In June 2015 he was sentenced to 17 months in prison, telling the court: "I never meant to hurt anyone".
