Man Who Jumped White House Fence Was Found with Mace, Letter to Trump
By Steve Neavling
The Secret Service said a man who breached security at the White House over the weekend was carrying a backpack with mace and a letter for President Trump.
An agent discovered Jonathan T. Tran, 26, of California, near the south entrance to the executive residence, CNN reports.
Tran said he wanted to talk to the president.
“No, I am a friend of the President. I have an appointment,” Tran said when approached by an officer, according to a report released Saturday by the Washington Metropolitan Police Department.
Tran said he “jumped the fence.”
Tran is expected to be charged with unlawful entry and arraigned in federal court on Monday.
