Nancy Pelosi's daughter handed Trump a bottle of water in White House without any security check, claims new book
The new book written by Washington Post reporters pointed out the glaring security lapse that occurred when Alexandra Pelosi was shooting a documentary in the White House a few weeks after Trump's inauguration
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, reportedly handed a bottle of water to President Donald Trump without anyone checking if it was contaminated, a new book about Trump's White House has claimed.
The highly-anticipated book, 'A Very Stable Genius', written by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig, pointed out the glaring security lapse in the White House that occurred nearly six weeks after Trump's inauguration.
The book stated that the incident happened when Alexandra Pelosi was directing a documentary inside the White House on March 1, 2017, and which featured President Trump. The president, at one point during the filming, asked for a bottle of water. However, the absence of any staff member in the room resulted in Pelosi taking out a bottle of Aquafina from her purse and handing it to him. She was reportedly shocked to see that there were no protocols to check the water.
"I've been to the White House," she told Rucker and Leonnig. "There are always protocols. Here there were no rules, no protocol. There's so much wrong with the whole thing. I'm thinking, Isn't there someone who's supposed to guard what he's eating and drinking?"
The incident appears to be another lapse in the president's security detail. A US Marine, earlier this month, was charged with impersonating a law-enforcement officer, and entering a zone around a private terminal use for the president's flights in Florida, according to court documents.
Pelosi was in the Trump White House to film Trump's part in a documentary titled 'The Words That Built America'. The book describes the film as a "conceit" based on the idea that America's “founding documents remained a unifying force for the nation’s factions” in the aftermath of the divisive 2016 presidential election.
President Trump slammed the book ahead of its release on January 21, 2020, saying it was "inaccurately reported."
"Another Fake Book by two third rate Washington Post reporters has already proven to be inaccurately reported, to their great embarrassment, all for the purpose of demeaning and belittling a President who is getting great things done for our Country, at a record clip,” the president tweeted over the weekend. “Thank you!”
