Trump Denies Fleeing To WH Bunker During DC Protest: I Only Went Briefly During The Day “For An Inspection”

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump on Wednesday disputed multiple reports that Secret Service agents rushed him to an underground bunker as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the White House on Friday night, asserting he went down earlier in the day “more for an inspection.”

“It was a false report. I wasn’t down,” Trump said during an appearance on “Brian Kilmeade Show” on Fox Radio. “I went down during the day, and I was there for a tiny little short period of time, and it was much more for an inspection. There was no problem during the day.”

Pressed by Kilmeade about whether Secret Service agents were concerned for his safety, Trump insisted that wasn’t the case. “Nope, they didn’t tell me that at all,” he said. “They said it would be a good time to go down, take a look, because maybe some time you’re going to need it.”
