Kessler: Trump Making Secret Service Better

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

President Donald Trump is working to make the Secret Service more efficient in protecting himself and future commanders-in-chief, veteran investigative reporter Ronald Kessler told Newsmax TV.

"Trump is transforming the Secret Service to make it an agency that properly protects the president and his family and the vice president – an agency that we can be proud of again," Kessler told host Bill Tucker on Wednesday's "America Talks Live."

"It began with Trump's DHS Secretary John Kelly firing two Secret Service uniformed officers.

"They were responsible for the fact an intruder was able to bum around the White House grounds for 16 minutes and even peer into White House windows and try to get into the White House."

Kessler, a former Washington Post reporter and author of "The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents," published by Crown Forum, said Kelly's move was a rarity.

"This was unheard of to fire anybody who was responsible for this kind of scandalous behavior, this debacle . . . Nobody had ever been fired under President Obama, just the opposite," he told Tucker.

"Obama kept appointing these directors from within the agency who were a part of the same cover up culture, the same laxness. 

"Obama's own life was at risk. My Secret Services agent sources had told me it was a miracle it wasn't already an assassination, and yet Obama was oblivious to it. . . . So, there's tremendous hope when you look at what Trump has already done with the Secret Service."
