The Secret Service Uniformed Division has confirmed that the White House just went on lockdown this morning. This major security response comes after several security breaches over the last week which didn’t require this specific action until today, which appears to be necessary given what was just discovered on the grounds.
NBC News’s National Correspondent, Peter Alexander, tweeted his witness account that the North Lawn has been evacuated and road closures around the White House are currently in effect. The Secret Service is combing the property and securing everyone inside after what’s been described as a “suspicious package” was discovered on the grounds.

There have never been so many security breaches in presidential history than there have been in the last two weeks with President Trump. Lunatic liberals feel justified in acting out their hatred toward our Commander-in-Chief and the mainstream media seems to support their effort as well, passing it off the result of Trump winning an election that he allegedly didn’t honestly earn. Leftists also find this a laughing matter as they are making remarks that the package was probably just Trump’s golf clubs. They seem to forget which president wasted the most time on the course.
If Barack Obama had received as many death threats, suspicious packages, and fence jumpers as Donald Trump has, each one of these suspects would still be locked up right now. Those who threaten Trump’s life walk free and it’s time for these crimes to be taken more seriously.
