President Trump has been targeted like no other Commander in Chief in our nation’s history, at least in terms of the constant bombardment of threats being hurled his way.
This unprecedented hostility is a product of two factors: His accessibility thanks to social media, and the “resistance” rhetoric that simply poisons the political realm in America. This has kept the Secret Service as busy as can be, dealing with any and all credible threats to the President’s safety both at the White House and out in the world-at-large.
The latest security incident comes to us from the President’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida – a place that Trump recently referred to as the “Southern White House”.
The Secret Service is leading the investigation and no arrest has yet been made, according to the Palm Beach Police Department.
Michael Ogrodnick, a police spokesman, declined further comment Tuesday, citing the investigation. But the department did provide a nearly completely redacted incident report showing officers were called around 7 p.m. to “assist” another law enforcement agency. The Secret Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
While law enforcement officials would not discuss the nature of the investigation, Mar-a-Lago security has been breached repeatedly since Trump became president. The private Palm Beach club and mansion has witnessed several high-profile trespassing incidents.
While it appears that there is no immediate threat to the President at this time, Americans are left to wonder whether it is better to know more or know less in instances such as this.
