The driver of President Trump’s motorcade has been removed due to having been found in possession of a gun. The discovery was made by security screening protocol of the vehicle, which was located just outside of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago private club in Palm Beach, Florida.
The unidentified driver is now in questioning. He claims that the firearm was his personal weapon that he forgot to remove. All drivers have been replaced for President Trump as questioning continues.
“White House staff said all drivers were replaced after the incident,” the pool report stated. “When press loaded back into vans, the driver was being questioned by an officer.”
The driver was banned from going onto the club’s property and was taken by a White House staffer for further questioning.
Trump and his motorcade were on its way to the International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Why would a driver in such an important position simply forget to remove his or her firearm? It seems to me that there are a number of questions which need to be answered. Trump’s security has been of the utmost concern ever since the election has thrust him into a polarizing spotlight. Hollywood celebrities have frequently made utterances regarding Trump’s life.
