"Not Concerned": Donald Trump After Chinese Woman Arrested At His Resort

And on Wednesday, Trump said he was "not concerned".

Federal officials are looking into whether a Chinese woman arrested at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club with a device containing computer malware was part of a larger effort to gain access to the president and do potential harm.

"The apparent ease with which Ms. Zhang gained access to the facility during the President's weekend visit raises concerns about the system for screening visitors, including the reliance on determinations made by Mar-a- Lago employees", wrote Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Mark Warner.

He also praised the job the Secret Service has done.

However, the event described by Zhang did not exist, and the receptionist summoned more Secret Service agents, telling them Zhang was not authorised to be there. The Justice Department said Zhang was carrying two Chinese passports, and prosecutors have charged her with making a false statement to a federal officer and entering restricted property.

The official said federal agents are combing through Yujing Zhang's electronics and treating the case as a "credible threat".

Stumo, originally from MA , is the niece of consumer activist Ralph Nader, who called for a boycott of the 737 Max on Thursday. Boeing's procedures instruct pilots to leave the MCAS disconnected and continue flying manually for the rest of the flight.

"The end result, it was good", Trump noted while adding, "I think probably we'll see what happened, where she's from, who she is, but the result is they were able to get her, and she is now suffering the consequences of whatever it is she had in mind". "And we know she is not the first", she said.

Commenting on the shooting hours later, President Trump told reporters that does not believe white nationalists pose a major threat to the United States.

In a letter on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff requested a briefing on the Zhang arrest from the heads of the FBI, Secret Service and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

After she was detained, she offered an additional story: that she was asked by a Chinese friend named Charles to travel from Shanghai to attend the event and attempt to speak to a member of the president's family about US-China economic relations, the document said.

The 32-year-old was arrested over the weekend while the president was visiting the club in Palm Beach, Florida.
