The White House was placed on lockdown and the surrounding area cordoned off by emergency personnel Saturday after an apparent gunshot was heard. The US Secret Service said on Twitter that it was responding "to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound along the north fence line of @White House." ... President Donald Trump was not at the White House at the time. He is spending the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
It said medical personnel were "responding to the male victim," but that there were "no other reported injuries."
The victim's identity was not immediately known.

The closest trump ever was to helping someone was that time a man cracked his skull on the stage and all trump could think about was how this nasty man was ruining his floor.
Trump has come on how about you?
I see you're one of the Trump Limo Hero Truthers. That story is unconfirmed and about as believable as his hair.
