Secret Service agents had briefly rushed U.S President Donald Trump to the White House bunker designed for use in emergencies like terrorist attacks.
White House spokesman Judd Deere declined to comment on any security protocols and decisions. The Secret Service also said that it does not discuss the means and methods of its protective operations. The president’s move to the bunker was first reported by The New York Times.
The First Lady even canceled her scheduled trip to Cape Canaveral, Florida, for witnessing a rocket launch and chose to remain in the White House. The president and his family (The First Lady and their 14-year-old son) have been residing in the White House and have not left the building since the protests broke out in Washington DC.
