USA. Shooting near the White House

24

Today, US President Donald Trump had to interrupt a press conference and leave the White House because of the shooting that took place near the administration building.


Trump was talking to reporters about the success of the US economy when his security officer approached him and said something in his ear. After listening to him, Trump silently left the hall and left, accompanied by guards. Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin and other administration officials left the premises with him. Soon, the American president returned and briefly spoke about the incident.

Fox News reporters attending the press conference reported that gunfire was heard from the street.

The Secret Service said the shots were fired at the corner of 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. A Secret Service officer and an unidentified man were involved in the shootout. Presumably, the officer opened fire on the suspect and wounded him. American law enforcement officers are acting at the scene. A Secret Service officer and suspect are taken to a local hospital. The department claims that neither the representatives of the administration, nor bystanders were injured:

During this incident, the White House complex was never breached, and none of the guarded persons were endangered.

    This is why they react so sharply that there is no Kremlin wall around the White House. Literally. And the fact that it is, a fence and a lawn (lawn) Here are the nervous ones. And here we are wondering what to bomb and all that. The whole reason lies in this. yes

            Especially if you promise to "put it up against the wall" for a wall that was not built on time.

        Both Mexican and Yatsenyuk are a good addition. Let 3 walls around B. They build houses.

      Nonsense.
      Trump silently left the hall and left
      Trump is a real cowboy, went into the next room and took his Smith-Wesson out of the cupboard, put it in his pocket and returned.

          Yes, it flares up and so - this little world has long been asking for a cleansing fire.
          And the whole flames yes
          The only question is when exactly - early or later. request

    Trump spoke to reporters about the success of the US economy
    I like these people. They lie not only to the whole world, but to their own people, for a sweet soul. 40 million unemployed in four months, the economy sank by a third, almost every week they "print" a trillion dollars (because there is no money), and they call this "successes in the economy." Almost like in Ukraine. There is no money in the budget, the war has already been six years, industrial territories have been lost, terrible unemployment, the land has already been sold, and the economy is growing steadily. laughing ... I still do not understand, the main thing in democracy turns out, does it grind better with language?

      Yes, let them have surrounded themselves with a wall along the entire border, but only returned the army to the national territory. Then the world order would finally change and the balance of power would obviously become different, since many nations and states live and operate with an eye on local or nearby US bases. But give them at least a semblance of independence and independence, and we would see that the United States has no allies or friends, but only those who are offended by them for what they did in the 20th century to this day!

    This is a signal to Trump from the Higher Powers! Do not meddle in the affairs of other countries, otherwise the next time they will shoot not on the street, but right in your office.

    Well, they waited .. And then the fans of amerskoy democracy and the police so much praised everything I remember. Standing on the knees of the police and others, will haunt the streets of the United States for a long time!
    I don’t know how to whom, but it was pleasant for me to read it ..
    And then they teach us how we need to live in Russia, Belarus and what laws to adopt!
