What bad luck that President Bonespur wasn't at the White House then, because he would surely have rushed out to disarm the man and subdue him.

We know that because President Bonespur assured us that he would have personally stormed Stoneman Douglas School unarmed to neutralize the shooter there, for he is a bigly brave man whose courage is only exceeded by his modesty, his stability and his genius.

Shots Fired At Trump's Miami Golf Course, One Arrested

One person has been detained after shots were fired at the the Trump National Doral Golf Club, near Miami, Florida.

According to the Doral Police Department, there are no known victims and no further threat expected. According to CBS4 News in Miami, the suspect is believed to have been shot and wounded by police during a confrontation, in which an officer was also injured.

A reporter for CBS4 News in Miami tweeted, "It is not clear if the man was armed or if he exchanged gunfire with officers. Both Doral Police and Miami Dade PD were involved. One officer was injured during the initial scuffle with police."

The Trump National Doral Golf Club was first established in 1962 in a western suburb of Miami by real estate developer Alfred Kaskel. The Trump Organization purchased the resort in 2012 for $150 million from its bankrupt owners

The purchase and renovation of the resort was financed with a $125 million loan from Deutsche Bank.

Miami Herald
Man firing gun and ranting about Trump shot by police inside Trump National Doral resort

A gunman ranting about President Donald Trump walked into the lobby of Trump National Doral Miami resort early Friday morning, draped an American flag on the counter and began firing.

The man — identified as Jonathan Oddi, 42, who was not a guest at the resort — waited in the lobby for police officers to arrive before luring them into a gunfight, authorities said. During the gunfight, the unidentified man was struck several times in the lower body. No workers at the resort or guests were injured. A Doral cop hurt his wrist. ...

Miami-Dade's police director said Oddi removed a flag from the back of the property and entered the lobby shouting "anti-Trump rhetoric," later shooting into the ceiling and chandeliers as officer rushed in. Five officers fired their weapons, Perez said, and Oddi suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the legs.

News footage shows Oddi, who lived nearby at a Doral apartment complex, arriving at Kendall Regional Medical Center on a stretcher. Doral mayor J.C. Bermudez said authorities do not believe the shooting was terrorism related. ...

Police said the lobby wasn’t crowded, but there were employees and hotel guests there. By sunrise, an array of federal agencies were on scene: the Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the police shooting, along with the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office.

CBS News
Secret Service arrests White House contractor with outstanding attempted murder warrant

The Secret Service arrested a contractor outside the White House on Tuesday for an outstanding warrant that includes an attempted murder charge, CBS News Washington correspondent Paula Reid reports.

A spokesperson for the sheriff's department of Prince George's Country, Maryland, told CBS News that the department had an outstanding warrant for a person by the name of Martese M. Edwards, on an attempted first-degree murder charge, dated May 17.

The Secret Service issued the following statement to CBS News:
"On June 4, 2018, the U.S. Secret Service was notified by the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) that Martese Edwards was the subject of a warrant issued out of Prince Georges County, MD. On June 5, 2018, Edwards was promptly arrested by Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers at a checkpoint outside of the White House complex when he was reporting to work as a contractor. Edwards was transported to MPD Second District for processing."
The Associated Press said the Secret Service didn't provide Edwards' exact job or where he worked at the White House. It wasn't immediately clear if he has a lawyer.

Watchdog: Secret Service for Eric, Donald Trump Jr. trips cost $230,000 in 1 month

Secret Service protection for President Donald Trump's two adult sons cost more than $230,000 in one month last year, according to documents obtained by a government watchdog.

Per documents made public Wednesday by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the Secret Service spent more than $200,000 when Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump went to the United Arab Emirates to formally open the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai in February 2017.

According to the documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request, the protective agency spent about $125,000 on airfare, another $75,000 on hotel rooms, and $15,000 more on other expenses such as transportation.

A similar trip to Dubai to attend a wedding in April cost only $73,000, CREW reported. The nonprofit organization did not offer an explanation why the 2017 trip cost "significantly more."

Maybe the Secret Service is a bit more cautious and restricts the billing and force the Jrs to take part of the bill. Like low room rates :think:

the April wedding in Dubai was also business:

National Security Archive
Judge Lets Secret Service Hide White House Visitor Logs

Washington, D.C., July 27, 2018 - Federal Judge Katherine Failla agreed with government lawyers and is allowing the Secret Service to hide the White House visitor logs in a FOIA lawsuit brought by the National Security Archive, together with the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University and the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). The visitor logs - 5.99 million records worth - were routinely released by the Obama administration, with no harm to national security or personal privacy.

Judge Failla, of the Southern District of New York, relied on a 2013 D.C. Circuit ruling in finding that the visitor logs for core White House offices are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act, although she agreed that certain other parts of the Executive Office of the President are covered.

The Secret Service has already admitted during the course of the lawsuit that it maintains no records system for tracking the president's visitors at Mar-a-Lago and other Trump properties, meaning anyone - foreign lobbyists and otherwise - can pay for access to the president without being vetted or recorded.

The only record the government has released so far in response to the FOIA suit is one document, totaling two pages, concerning the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - this after telling Judge Failla and the plaintiffs that DHS would produce all the visitor logs.
