Intruder arrested on White House grounds

He was also carrying an Apple laptop, a USA passport, a book authored by Trump and a letter to the president, Daily Mail reports.

Construction of the new 11-foot-7-inch fence, compared with the current 7-foot (2.13 m) barrier, is due to begin by next year, the Secret Service said in January.

The man was arrested by a Secret Service member near the south entrance to the executive resident, according to the report.

He was living in his vehicle, the sibling added, before calling Tran a "very good brother".

Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers made the arrest without incident, the Secret Service's statement said.

"This is really troubling", said Jonathan Wackrow, an ex-Secret Service agent.

The officer also states Tran, dressed in a hooded sweatshirt of jacket, told him, "I am a friend of the president".




On the computer, the Secret Service said it found a letter addressed to Mr Trump discussing Russian hackers and saying that Tran had "information of relevance".

The Secret Service searched the north and south grounds but nothing of concern turned up.

Trump, who was in the White House at the time, said he was told about the intruder on Friday night.

A thorough search of the intruder's backpack revealed no hazardous materials.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has been briefed on the security breach. It's the first breach during the Trump administration, but on Thanksgiving Day in 2015 a flag-wearing intruder scaled the fence.

Surveillance footage shows Tran jumping a fence located near the Treasury Building, which is the neighbor building to the White House, the complaint reads.
