Donald Trump would not have updated security systems in the White House – US – International

The White House, from the government of Donald Trump, he needed improvements in his security apparatus. Updates that included digging deep from the upper and lower main entrance of the property through the green lawn, according to information from ‘CNN’.

Members of the United States Secret Services stressed that due to new security threats from different sectors, it was vitally important to review the security systems of the house that houses the president Joe Biden and his family.

The project has implied the presence of workers, machinery, uncomfortable detours that would last for several weeks. According to the local media, this was an update that has been required since Trump’s term, but which he apparently postponed.

Sources familiar with the project revealed to ‘CNN’ that when Timothy Harleth, Chief Administrator of the White House, explained the plan to the former president and the first lady, Melania Trump, they disagreed. Testimony reveals that the couple did not want construction noise or disturb the aesthetics of the home’s backyard.

(Also: Facebook will continue to block Trump from its social media.)

Currently the project, which has been underway for several weeks, is one of the largest and most extensive in this building in recent years. This has meant that Biden has to board his helicopter, Marine One, at the Elipse, a park north of Avenida de la Constitución. This is an unusual landing and takeoff spot. In addition, the American president has had to make a two-minute caravan from the White House and the park to get out and about.

It’s been a headache“a Secret Service source told the local media.

The last time a project of this magnitude was carried out was during the government of Barack Obama, where the north side of the White House was fixed to make improvements similar to those that are being made now.

(You may be interested: Biden Administration clarifies that its aid does not include ESMAD).

According to an official spokesman for the Presidency, the renovations could last between eight to ten weeks and among them includes the installation of an extensive route of underground conduits that would contain security devices such as camera and lighting wiring.

A new fire safety law has sparked anger in Britain, as it could force tenants to spend large sums to modernize buildings and make them less prone to fires.

The fire safety bill, which went into effect in England and Wales on Thursday, aims to define more clearly the responsibility for fire safety in buildings containing more than one home. The law was introduced in the wake of the fatal fire in the tower in west London, which killed 72 people after a small fire quickly spread throughout the building due to its flammable façade. Separate laws apply in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Uruguay will have the opportunity to live an Apple experience never before seen in the country.

“In addition, we take into account the low supply of products, logistical proximity and the cultural aspect. We believe that the country has a high social level and economic stability that provides greater security to the investor. We believe that Uruguay will be the beginning of our international expansion project to other countries, “said the executive.

iPlace It is one of the 19 brands of the Herval Group that exceeded 60 years of history in Brazil. The Group operates in the most varied segments, from Industry, Retail and Services. “After more than 10 years of association with Apple in Brazil, we are taking an important step in Latin America and it may just be the beginning of a great journey into the future.“he explained José Agnelo Seger, Group president.

“We are very honored and grateful for all the support that the Uruguayan Government and its entities are offering to our teams day by day,” said the President.

In addition, the association with banks and telephone operators are already in advanced negotiations to offer exclusive conditions to Uruguayans.

One of the highlights of the concept store, according to Matheus, will be the service to the public. The executive says iPlace will provide a team of technical consultants with high knowledge of the Apple world and create a customer training room with free workshops on the tech giant’s universe.

In addition to the personalized service, having an iPlace store in the country will ensure that Uruguayans receive the latest launches in a much shorter period of time compared to the current scenario.
