Two Secret Service officers are being investigated for allegedly taking selfies with the grandson of President Donald Trump while the boy slept in the back of a vehicle they were operating.
Donald Trump III was being transported by the agents when the incident took place. Young Trump was traveling from the family estate in Westchester, New York, back into Manhattan, reports say.
Trump III, Donald Jr and Vanessa Trump‘s son, woke up as the agents were snapping selfies and was ‘freaked out’. The youngster told his mom about the alleged incident as soon as he got home, and she then reported it to his father. It was quickly being discussed by those at the very top of the Secret Service, and the two agents in question have since been summoned to front the Secret Service Office of Professional Responsibility in DC.
The agency released a statement about the incident on Wednesday. The moment he got home to Manhattan he told his mom, who then passed the information along to Trump Jr – kicking off the investigation, the website reports. h/t dailymail
