Secret Service agents arrested a Chinese woman after she bypassed security and gained access to the reception area of President Trump’s Florida resort on the weekend. According to court documents, she was found carrying two passports and a thumb drive containing malicious software.
Prosecutors say the woman, Yujing Zhang, first approached a Mar-a-Lago security checkpoint on Saturday shortly after noon and told security officials she was there to go to the swimming pool.
The incident has renewed concerns about security at Trump's club, which stays open for its members and their guests when the president is there. The president was golfing in South Florida the afternoon of the incident, but there is no indication he saw or interacted with the woman.
