Donald Trump’s family was violated in a truly sick way this week when it was revealed that two Secret Service agents who were assigned to protect Donald Trump III, the president’s grandson, took selfies with the 8 year-old child as he slept.
Mother Jones reported that the Secret Service has launched an investigation into this incident, as the agents have been accused of abandoning their post while charged with protecting the grandson of the President of the United States.
The incident occurred last weekend when the agents were told to drive the child from Westchester County, New York, where the Trump family has an estate, to Manhattan. Donald Trump III fell asleep in the backseat, and when they noticed this, the agents began taking selfies with him. A source said the child woke up in the middle of the photos being taken and promptly “freaked out.” When he told his parents what happened, the issue was brought to the top management levels, and the agents were ordered to report to the Secret Service Office of Professional Responsibility in Washington, DC.
The Secret Service confirmed an investigation is underway in a brief statement.
“The US Secret Service is aware of a matter involving two of our agents and one of our protectees,” a spokesman said. “Our Office of Professional Responsibility will always thoroughly review a matter to determine the facts and to ensure proper, long-standing protocols and procedures are followed. The Secret Service would caution individuals to not jump to conclusions that may grossly mischaracterize the matter.”
This comes as the Secret Service continues to do damage control days after an intruder scaled the White House fence and was able to get close to the entrance of the north portico of the home.
