So a man with a backpack jumped the fence and then made his way all the way to the south portico entrance of the White House. Officials say President Trump in no way was in any immediate danger.
The Secret Service was able to arrest this man. We don’t know his name yet. As for that backpack…officials say that they weren’t able to find anything dangerous or hazardous inside that backpack. They did search and screen it and they searched the entire grounds here at the White House.”
