Protests and clashes with police at the White House forced US President Donald Trump to hide in an underground bunker in central Washington, as The New York Times reported.

"Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the gates, shouting curses at President Trump, and in some cases threw bricks and bottles. Concerned about his safety, secret service agents placed the president in an underground bunker that was used in the past during terrorist attacks," the statement said.

It is noted that bricks and glass bottles flew into law enforcement officers, in response, they sprayed tear gas. Protesters lit a fire on the roadway, burned road signs, tree branches, and the American flag in flames. In addition, in the very center of the US capital, due to unrest, several buildings burned down, including the mansion of the century before last.

According to NYT, US President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney descended into the same bunker during the September 11, 2001 attacks. After these events, an underground shelter was practically not used.

The Secret Service has certain protocols to protect the president in case the White House is in jeopardy. At the same time, the US Presidential Administration did not comment on the information on whether Trump really went down to the bunker.

As we reported before, the protests in connection with the murder of black citizens George Floyd by a policeman in Minnesota spanned about 30 cities of the United States.
