CNN reports Secret Service detained a man driving up to a White House checkpoint, claiming to have a bomb in his car.
Fortunately, President Trump is safe and at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida at the time.
They say it occurred 11:05 P.M. Saturday night and an investigation is currently taking place.
CNN Washington Correspondent Ryan Nobles reported the Secret Service’s statement about the incident.

Not only do I pray for the safety of Trump, but also for the Secret Service. They work so hard to protect him while dealing with many freak incidents.
A severe case was in 2014 when Omar Gonzales ran across the front lawn and into the White House.
CBS News reported details.
The man, 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez, ran unobstructed for 70 yards across the front lawn of the White House before entering through the North Portico. On the way, he brushed by a Secret Service officer with a drawn gun, sources tell CBS News’ Bill Plante.
Gonzalez then proceeded to run through the entrance hall to the cross hall of the White House, past the staircase that leads up to the first family’s residence. He was confronted by a female Secret Service agent, who he overpowered, and made it all the way to the East Room.
Fortunately, President Barack Obama at the time was unharmed from it.
These are scary times for the Secret Service, especially with the number of threats Trump is facing.
May God keep everyone safe, including them and the president.
