  • Arrest revives security concerns at Trump's Florida estate

President Trump, meeting and dining with senior military leaders Wednesday night, said he isn't concerned about security or espionage fears at Mar-a-Lago after a woman was arrested and charged for allegedly trespassing onto the property with a malware-infected device.

Ivanovich said Zhang carried four cellphones, a laptop computer, an external hard drive and a thumb drive containing computer malware.

US President Donald Trump has dismissed a recent alleged breach of his Florida resort, saying he was "not concerned" about the incident. The group, which is not affiliated with the United Nations, has promoted the Chinese Communist Party, and advertised events at Mar-a-Lago as ways for Chinese businessmen to participate in President Xi Jinping's so-called business diplomacy agenda - essentially, an effort to have Chinese executives make friends with important people overseas. They said the Federal Bureau of Investigation hasn't responded.

"Secret Service is fantastic, these are fantastic people, and the end result - it was good", said the president.

While there was no such event planned, the Post reported a Chinese entrepreneur named Charles Li, with a group called the United Nations Chinese Friendship Association, has sold package tours that included tickets to events at Mar-a-Lago.

The newspaper reported Zhang wasn't known to federal authorities before last weekend, when she passed Secret Service guards and entered the club, only to be stopped by a receptionist.

"No swimming apparel was found in Zhang's possession or on her person", it said.

Representative Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairman of the U.S. House Oversight Committee, said the Secret Service, which protects the president, will brief him and top committee Republican Jim Jordan on the incident.

"We have very good control", he added.

"I saw the story".

And on Wednesday, some Congressional Democrats wrote to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding answers. "I haven't spoken to anyone", he told reporters at the White House.

The letter followed a previous request from Schiff and other top Democrats asking for a new FBI investigation into a Florida woman's apparent ties to Trump, focusing on whether Cindy Yang illegally sought to leverage her relationship with the President by selling access to Chinese clients.
