A man at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida claiming over the weekend that he got past the Secret Service to take a selfie in the president's private study — a claim the Secret Service is disputing.
Joseph Young posted a photo of himself shortly after midnight Sunday in the study with the caption: "Snuck by secret service to catch this selfie. They might have told us not to go in there," The New York Post reported.
The man has since deleted the post, the paper added.
People on social media were quick to share the photo, with some criticizing security at the Mar-a-Lago resort.
“Those reports are all false,” spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan told The Post. “No one got past the Secret Service.”
Another man posted a photo of himself and his mother that appeared to be taken in the same room, with the caption: "In Trump's study with Mom."
