United States President, Donald Trump, has spoken about his brief stay at the underground White House bunker, called Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC).
The facility serves as a shelter and communications center for U.S. Presidents and others in case of an emergency.
On Friday night, Donald Trump was taken to the bunker by the Secret Service when protesters of George Floyd’s death gathered outside the White House.
The American leader, wife and son were reportedly in the bunker for a little under an hour but Trump claims he went there for an “inspection” dismissing reports that it was for protection from the protesters..
“It was much more for the inspection. I was there for a tiny, little period of time. They said it would be a good time to go down and take a look because maybe sometime you’re going to need it”, he told Fox News Radio.
Trump reiterated his threat of military action in New York if the protests persist.
“If they don’t get their act straightened out I will solve it. I’ll solve it fast,” he said.
