  • Man arrested on White House grounds after scaling fence

Trump praised the Secret Service for stopping the intruder, telling reporters as he began a meeting with Cabinet officials at a golf club he owns in Virginia that the agents did a "fantastic job", according to Reuters. A Secret Service officer found him near the south entrance to the building, officials said.

The intruder was carrying a backpack and purportedly got close to the White House's south portico residence entrance, near the Washington Monument.

Authorities did not find unsafe materials inside the backpack following a screening.

Mr Trump, who was in the White House at the time, was not in any danger from the security breach, which occurred around midnight, CNN reported. He had the mace in a jacket pocket and a book bag with a book on the President, a USA passport and an Apple laptop computer.

Another man wearing an American flag jumped the fence in November 2015.
