Minutes later, Trump reappeared at the press conference, where journalists had been locked in, and announced that someone had been shot outside the White House grounds.
“Law enforcement shot someone, it seems to be, the suspect. And the suspect is on the way to the hospital,” he said.
Trump said he knew nothing about the identity or motives of the person shot, but when asked if the person had been armed, answered: “From what I understand, the answer is yes.”
