SECRET SERVICE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday [4-19-17] it plans to restrict public access to the sidewalk along the southern fence of the White House, weeks after a man scaled the barrier and walked around the grounds.
The changes are a part of an ‘ongoing comprehensive review’ of security measures at the White House and its surrounding grounds, the Secret Service said in a statement Wednesday evening.
The new restrictions come just a month after a man carrying mace scaled the White House fence and was able to roam the grounds…
The agency said the new policy could lessen the likelihood of any future breaches, but did not attribute the changes to a particular incident.”
