WASHINGTON (BLOOMBERG) – President Donald Trump said he did not go to a secure bunker in the White House for his safety as protesters clashed with police outside the White House, but “much more for an inspection.”
“Well, that was a false report,” Trump said on Wednesday (June 3) on Brian Kilmeade’s Fox News Radio show.
“I was there for a tiny, little short period of time. It was much more for an inspection.”
Trump was moved to a secure area late on Friday as a condition “red” was declared at the White House amid violent protests over the death of George Floyd, according to a person familiar with the matter.
“I’ve gone down two or three times, all for inspection. And you go there, some day you may need it. But you go there, I went down, I looked at it. It was during the day,” the president said.
