On Wednesday, former Homeland Security official Juliette Kayyem explained how President Donald Trump has set low standards for security at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
Earlier this week, an unauthorized Chinese woman identified as Yujing Zhang was arrested after entering Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort with “malicious malware.”
According to CNN’s Erin Burnett, security at Mar-a Lago allowed Zhang to enter the property because of a misunderstanding due to a language barrier.
“Mar-a-Lago staff said that they first gave her access to the property on Saturday due to a potential language barrier issue,” Burnett said.
However, the Secret Service had a different story.
“But in the criminal complaint, Secret Service agent very explicitly say they spent time with her and talked to her and quote ‘she exhibited a detailed knowledge and ability to converse in and understand even subtle nuances of the English language.’ So this not speaking English well appears to be a farce,” Burnett said.
“Right, she is a fraud and she is not some innocent Chinese woman who happened to see an advertisement that said come meet the Trump’s at Mar-a-Lago. She is playing for someone. And we don’t know if it’s a government entity, or someone testing the system,” Kayyem said.
” It explains why the Secret Service last night essentially threw the White House under the bus in their explanation saying we didn’t set the standard. That came from Mar-a-Lago or Trump directly. That this would only be a swept facility and someone tested it. And we know she is not the first,” she said.

Even Trump criticizes Mike Pence’s answer about why the administration won’t open Obamacare exchanges
At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press briefing, reporters asked Vice President Mike Pence to justify why the administration is refusing to reopen the Affordable Care Act insurance marketplaces for a special enrollment period in response to the pandemic — and the vice president's answer was so evasive and unhelpful that even President Donald Trump teased him for it.
Pence replied that he was working with insurance companies to eliminate copays for coronavirus-related treatment — which doesn't help people who have no coverage and can't enroll because the administration hasn't authorized enrollment.
Trump hints he may have to bail out ‘our great oil companies’ at coronavirus presser
On Wednesday, at the daily press conference on coronavirus, President Donald Trump suggested that he might be left with no choice but to offer assistance to oil companies.
"Now, gasoline's going to be 99 cents a gallon or less, you know that. That's already popping up. 99 cents," said Trump. "So that's look giving a massive tax cut to people of our country."
"I'm going to meet with the oil companies on Friday," continued Trump. "I'm going to meet with independent oil producers also on Friday or Saturday, maybe Sunday. But we're having a lot of meetings on it. I think I know what to do to solve it. But if they're unable to solve it, then I think I know what to do to solve it. But it's tough. I think I know what to do to solve it. We don't want to lose our great oil companies. We're the number one producer of oil in the world. I do believe there's a way that can be solved or pretty well solved, and I'd rather not do that."
Art of the Deal coauthor claims George Conway has been telling people his wife is in a cult
Tony Schwartz, President Donald Trump's co-author of The Art of the Deal, claims that Republican lawyer George Conway believes his wife has been recruited into a cult.
"Months ago, George Conway told me that Kellyanne Conway is part of a cult, something he has said to many others" Schwartz tweeted on Wednesday. "Her rapturous comments about Trump's response to the Covid-19 crisis prove his point."
It's the first time the comment has made it to the public about the senior White House counselor.
Mr. Conway is the co-founder of the Lincoln Project, a PAC designed to attack President Donald Trump and those who support him with hard-hitting ads and web videos.
