Armed man trying to reach Ivanka Trump arrested

A Bronx man wearing a bulletproof vest and toting throwing knives was arrested yesterday when he allegedly tried to enter Trump Tower in an attempt to see Ivanka Trump.

"Ballistic gear" was worn under Benitez's shirt, police said.

Police say Benitez told agents he was a US senator and wanted to talk to Ms. Trump about her dress line, according to New York's Daily News. Benitez was transported to nearby Weill Cornell Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation and has since been charged in connection with the fake I.D. and weapons possession.

Police said he had a bullet-resistant vest and a fake ID. Ivanka Trump was not in the building at the time.

Donald Trump, once again, insults 'Morning Joe' co-host Mika Brzezinski
Trump set up the commission in May to study his allegations of widespread voter fraud in last year's presidential election. The President is in no position to criticize on another person's appearance, he said.

An armed man was arrested at Trump Tower after trying to gain access to the building to meet with Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel cited "many commonalities" on foreign policy after a meeting that included Merkel, Trump, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Trump family members and advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

A spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney told BuzzFeed News that there was no scheduled court appearance for Benitez since he was likely still in hospital.
