President Trump was briefly taken to the White House underground bunker for a period of time as protesters gathered outside the White House Friday night in Washington, according to a White House official and a law enforcement source.

He was there for a little under an hour before being brought upstairs.

The law enforcement source familiar with protocol said that if authorities moved Trump they would move all protectees, meaning Melania and Barron.

A law enforcement source and another source familiar with the matter told CNN that Melania and Barron Trump were also taken to the bunker.

The separate source said, “If the condition at the White House is elevated to RED and the President is moved to the EOC (Emergency Operations Center, below the East Wing), Melania Trump, Barron Trump and any other first family members would be moved as well.”

Trump has repeatedly praised the Secret Service for its handling of the protests outside the White House Friday night.
