Nobody said making American great again was going to be safe. The ‘First Daughter’ Ivanka Trump was targeted by a man, armed with throwing knifes, claiming to have a meeting with her at Trump Tower.
Ivanka Trump got a visitor at Trump Tower who showed up armed with throwing knives and a bulletproof vest under his suit … according to the Secret Service.
Law enforcement sources tell us agents busted Sixto Benitez Thursday at Trump Tower when his knives and vest set off a metal detector. Agents patted him down and removed the weapons. When he was taken into custody, we’re told he claimed to own Trump Tower and that he was a U.S. Senator there to see Ivanka.
Ivanka was not at Trump Tower at the time.
52-year-old Benitez was turned over to NYPD and taken to Cornell Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation. He was booked for criminal possession of a weapon.
Ivanka is currently in Germany as her father attends the G20 Summit.
Daily Mail reports:
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are using their current overseas trip to let loose, with the pair throwing caution to the wind as they make a very public display of their affection.
The First Daughter even shared a photo of the couple as they strolled across a vast lawn in the city of Hamburg one day before the start of the G20, with Jared leading his wife by the hand as she tottered behind in a pair of her eponymous heels.
‘We’ve landed in Germany and are looking forward to productive discussions at the G20 Hamburg Summit!’ wrote Ivanka, who added the hashtags ‘#POTUSatG20’ and ‘#G20.’
She did not expound upon what would constitute a ‘productive’ discussion at the summit.
This frisky new behavior between the couple, who will soon be celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary, has been going on for the past 24 hours.
It started from the moment the two landed in Poland on Wednesday, with Ivanka and Jared clutching each other by the hand as they descended the steps of Air Force One after President Trump and the First Lady.
Surely this won’t be the last episode involving Ivanka and her family facing danger.
