One protester managed to make his way into the press area despite the tight security and got close to President Donald Trump as he was on his way to a planned Senate GOP lunch on Tuesday. The protester who posed as a journalist was standing with reporters outside the Senate chamber on the building’s second floor. As Trump walked by accompanied by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others, the man tossed small Russian flags bearing the word “Trump” toward the president.
