The president of the United States gave his daily press briefings when an agent in charge of his security approached. "Excuse me ?" asked Donald Trump by interrupting, before leaving calmly the room once the agent has slipped some explanations to the ear, followed by his team. "Shaken ? (...) The world has always been a dangerous place. This is not something special," replied the republican to a question from a journalist, to his return after several minutes.
"I feel safe with the Secret Service. These are fantastic people, the best of the best", he said of the federal agency, ensuring the close protection of the leader of the United State and other political figures of the united states. Donald Trump then resumed his press conference focused on the pandemic and the u.s. economy.Updated Date: 10 August 2020, 19:33
