President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has admitted that he was taken down the Presidential underground bunker in the Whitehouse to “inspect it” in case he might need it.
The facility is called Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC). It serves as a shelter and communications center for U.S. Presidents and others in case of an emergency.
Trump was taken there by the Secret Service on Friday night as protesters of George Floyd’s death gathered outside the White House.
The American leader, wife and son were reportedly in the bunker for a little under an hour.
Responding to insinuations that he was taken into the bunker for protection against the raging protesters, President Trump insisted that he went there for an “inspection”.
“It was much more for the inspection. I was there for a tiny, little period of time. They said it would be a good time to go down and take a look because maybe sometime you’re going to need it.”
This was even as threatened a military action in New York if the protests persist.
“If they don’t get their act straightened out I will solve it. I’ll solve it fast.”
