Secret Service agents foiled an ISIS plot by ISIS to assassinate President Trump while he was in the Philippines last year.

The botched assassination attempt was in November 2017, when Trump was in Manila for a summit and met with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

The National Geographic disclosed the assassination attempt for the first time during its television special Sunday about the Secret Service, United States Secret Service: On the Front Line.

According to the report, threats had been made on Twitter, and a series of ISIS videos threatened the president with an ambush.

While in Manila, Secret Service agents discovered and apprehended a jihadi hiding out and waiting for an “associate” just blocks from the hotel where the president was staying.

The U.S. Secret Service has been alerted about a tweet by actor Peter Fonda, who said President Trump’s youngest son, Barron Trump,  should be separated from his mother and put “in a cage with pedophiles,” CNN reports.

“We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will will stand up against the giant a–hole she is married to. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F—,” Fonda wrote in a tweet, which has since been deleted.
First lady Melania Trump’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, called the tweet “sick and irresponsible,” and said the Secret Service has been notified. A Secret Service spokesman said the agency is aware of the tweet but declined to comment, citing the agency’s practice of not speaking about protective matters, CNN reports.
Fonda has been angry about the way immigrant children have been separated from their parents.

While working a detail, Secret Service agents act professionally. But internally, they have opinions of the people they protect.

Jason Wells, a writer of both fiction and non-fiction, knows a thing or two about the Obamas. He is a former U.S. Secret Service agent who worked a detail protecting the Obama family, and answers the question about the family in a story posted on the website, VT, a news and entertainment outlet:

“With that stated…. Senator Obama, Mrs. Obama and their two daughters were always extremely cordial and appreciative for everything that we provided them.”

“They were engaging with us, asking us about our families and making sure that we were provided for. On numerous occasions, Mr. Obama would ask me how my wife was doing (she was pregnant with our first child), and wished her the best.

Wells Linkedin page says this:

Provided physical protection to senior executive leadership of the United States of America including President Obama, Former Presidents Carter, Clinton, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and families, Vice President Biden and family, Former Vice President Cheney and family; as well as security for foreign dignitaries hosted in the United States (including Prime Minister Tony Blair).

Retired Secret Service Agent Warned Florida School of Vulnerabilities 2 Months Before Shooting

By Allan Lengel

Here’s some disturbing news.

Two months before the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, a retired Secret Service agent warned administrators that the school could be vulnerable to a gunman, the Sun Sentinel reports:

Gates were unlocked. Students did not wear identification badges. A fire alarm could send students streaming into the halls. Active-shooter drills were inadequate, he said.

The retired agent, Steve Wexler, said he made his point by strolling through the school with Post-it notes, attaching them to places his bullets or knife would land if he were an intruder. No one stopped him, he said.

In an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Wexler said he was invited to analyze the school’s security and presented his recommendations to four staff members.

“I said, ‘This stuff is blatantly obvious. You’ve got to fix this,’” Wexler said.

He never heard another word from the district, he said.
