NYT: Scared Trump Rushed To Underground Bunker As Protesters Surround The White House
President Donald Trump was “abruptly rushed to the underground bunker” as protesters surrounded the White House on Friday, according to The New York Times. It’s unclear what prompted the Secret Service to take Trump to the underground bunker, but there is a protocol to get him to safety if they feel the White House and the president are threatened.
The bunker has been designed to withstand the force of a passenger jet crashing into the White House above it. Then-Vice President Dick Cheney was brought on Sept. 11, 2001, as planes hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
According to the report, Trump was “rattled” and spent the evening in the bunker with his family.
He “emerged on Saturday morning to boast that he never felt unsafe and vow to sic ‘vicious dogs’ and ‘ominous weapons’ on intruders. Melania Trump, anxious about the protests, opted at the last minute not to travel to Florida for the rocket launch on Saturday,” said the Times.
On Sunday, Trump ranted “FAKE NEWS” about 15 minutes after the report went live. It’s unclear if he’s calling the story false or the fact that he was “rattled” is false.

Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden took to the streets Sunday to listen to the concerns of protesters and spoke on the phone with many mayors in the country.
