The Obama White House had experienced several major security breach and fence jumping, but this is the first after Trump became a White House resident on January 20.

He also states that the intruder "may have attempted entry into the building". The unidentified man was allegedly heading toward the White House fence - the second person in the last week to do so - but didn't make it that far. The agency said it is conducting an investigation.

Chaffetz wrote a letter Friday to Secret Service Acting Director William Callahan demanding all video and related information on the breach.

On Friday, a House Oversight Committee ordered the Secret Service to preserve documents in the March 10 episode and deliver a full briefing Monday. "I have an appointment", according to a Washington DC police report.

Some members of Congress are outraged, one telling us it's beyond comprehension the intruder was not on the radar of the Secret Service when he jumped the fence.

After the incident, the Secret Service insisted the President was never in danger. He praised the Secret Service for doing a "fantastic job" apprehending a "troubled person".

The President insisted he had a "great" meeting with the German Chancellor in a tweet on Saturday morning. Mr Trump is holding Mrs Merkel's hand in a very formal way as if to kiss it.


He now faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

No hazardous materials were found during a search of a backpack the individual carried over the fence, the agency said.

On Friday, it was revealed that the intruder was on White House property for more than 16 minutes, much longer than originally thought.

Jonathan Tran, who carried two cans of mace, set off multiple alarms, Bongino told Fox News, and was even spotted by Secret Service officers, but was still able to come within "close proximity" of the White House and even reportedly "jiggled the door" to the executive mansion.

In 2014, 42-year-old Omar Gonzales, from Texas, made it through the north portico doors with a three-and-a-half-inch folding knife in his pocket before he was apprehended, according to the Secret Service.
