A spokesperson for White House Security has just confirmed that the intruder apprehended today was Nigel Farage.
Mr. Farage was promptly arrested after scaling the wall of the White House habitation wing carrying a rucksack.
Amongst other things, inside the rucksack were a Russian flag, a picnic for two and a crumpled CV.
President Trump was in residence at the time but wasn’t aware of the presence of Mr. Farage until he was informed by the authorities.
Mr. Farage made the following statement at the point of arrest;
“Look. There’s a serious misunderstanding here, The President and I were going to lunch on the lawn. I was just trying to illustrate how easy it is to climb his wall and inform him that his border wall needs to be much bigger.”
