Trump not concerned with Florida club security breach

A federal prosecutor called Zhang "an extreme risk of flight" and said she had no ties to the United States or Palm Beach area, according to audio of her court hearing Monday, obtained by CNN.

For the last several years, she had promoted events at Mar-a-Lago in an effort to provide Chinese business executives with access to the club and a chance to mingle with Trump, his family and advisers, the Herald reports.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the issue. She has been photographed alongside Trump, as well as other prominent Republican figures, though she and the White House have said that Yang and the president have no relationship.

Zhang's arrest attracted comments from Chinese internet users on the popular Weibo microblogging service, many of whom portrayed her as having been tricked by those seeking to exploit her desire for attention and connections. The Justice Department said Zhang was carrying two Chinese passports, and prosecutors have charged her with making a false statement to a federal officer and entering restricted property. No, I think that was just a fluke situation and I think that the person sitting at the front desk did a very good job, to be honest with you.

"The danger, I think, of white supremacists, violent extremism or another kind of extremism is of course significant".

Chinese citizen Yujing Zhang talked her way past checkpoints into the exclusive Trump resort while the president was golfing nearby.

"The end result, it was good", Trump noted while adding, "I think probably we'll see what happened, where she's from, who she is, but the result is they were able to get her, and she is now suffering the consequences of whatever it is she had in mind".

During a search she was found to be carrying two Chinese passports, four phones, a laptop and a USB stick containing computer malware, according to a court complaint. He said Zhang said she had traveled from Shanghai to attend the nonexistent Mar-a-Lago event on the invitation of an acquaintance named "Charles", whom she only knew through a Chinese social media app.

"The apparent ease with which Ms. Zhang gained access to the facility during the president's weekend visit raises concerns about the system for screening visitors, including the reliance on determinations made by Mar-a-Lago employees".

And on Wednesday, some Congressional Democrats wrote to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding answers.
