President Trump Taken To Underground Bunker Over Protest In White House

President Donald Trump was briefly taken to an underground bunker in the White House after rioters gathered outside the premises housing the US president and his family.

A source in the White House disclosed that the president was in the underground bunker for a little under an hour before being brought upstairs, CNN reported.

A law enforcement source and another source familiar with the matter also told CNN that the first lady, Melania Trump and their son, Barron, were also taken to the bunker.

The incident was said to have occurred on Friday night, May 29, when protests erupted outside the white house over the police killing of George Floyd by a police officer in the US city of Minneapolis.

Fox News reported that more than 50 secret service officers were injured on Sunday night, May 31, by rioters throwing bottles and Molotov cocktails.

An official told the news channel that groups are planting cars filled with incendiary materials for future use.
