Investigation Report

According to the president’s calendar, he didn’t have any appearances outside of the White House and is believed to have been there at the time of the incident.

Over the past few years, there have been multiple incidents of people being arrested outside the White House.

A California man carrying mace was arrested in March 2017 after scaling the fence and making it all way to the exterior of the White House. Trump was in the White House at the time.

In September 2018, an individual was taken into custody after they climbed over the security barrier outside the White House.

And in November 2019, a person was taken into custody after they allegedly attempted to drive an unauthorized vehicle through a White House security checkpoint.

Incidents like these prompted White House officials to upgrade the fence that surrounds the presidential mansion from the six foot version to one that will be 13 feet high with ‘anti-climb’ technology.
