Trump Says He’s Not Concerned About Potential Espionage After Mar-a-Lago Arrest: ‘Just a Fluke’


President Donald Trump tonight addressed the arrest of a Chinese woman with a device containing malware who lied her way into his Mar-a-Lago club.

Trump was asked earlier tonight, “Mr. President, can we ask you are concerned that the Chinese may be trying to conduct some espionage against the united States by spying on you at Mar-a-Lago?”

“I saw the story,” the president responded. “I haven’t spoken to anybody about it other than I had a brief meeting, gave me a little bit of information. No, I’m not concerned at all. I have––we have very good control. We have extremely good––and it’s getting better, frankly what we’re doing with cyber is a story in itself. No, I think that was just a fluke situation and I think that the person sitting at the front desk did a very good job, to be honest with you. I think that particular woman did a very, very good job. She was able to see things that other people were not. But, no, I think it’s just a fluke.”

He also praised the job the Secret Service has done.
