The Secret Service, which handles White House security, said the driver had approached a "checkpoint located at 15th Street and E Street NW" at around 23:05 local time (03:05 GMT).

On Saturday, an unidentified person was arrested for jumping over a bike rack near the White House, according to CNN.

US Secret Service officers stand in the cordoned-off area on Pennsylvania Avenue on Sunday after a security incident near the fence of the White House in Washington on Saturday.

"The moment somebody jumps over the fence they have to be taken down", Chaffetz later told CNN. Criminal charges are pending, it said.

As of Friday afternoon, the link was deleted from the White House website.

The would-be-intruder was tackled by two Secret Service agents and was not able to make it over the fence.

A robot was said to be inspecting the trunk of the suspect's vehicle, which was still parked outside the White House. The Secret Service says it's investigating.

It said that he breached a 5-foot perimeter fence near the Treasury Department at 11:21 p.m.

A law enforcement source said the security process on Saturday worked the way it was supposed to, with the man who jumped the bike rack being apprehended quickly.

U.S. broadcaster CNN reported the security incident occurred near the White House in Washington DC late today (local time), citing law enforcement officials. President Donald Trump's proposed deep cuts in foreign aid could mark the retreat of US support for South Sudan, a nation America enthusiastically helped to create.
