Secret Service Chief Discusses Threat Level Against Trump

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Secret Service is investigating about the same number of threats against Donald Trump as it did against the last several presidents, the agency's new director said Thursday.

"The number of threats has been fairly constant over the past 10 years, about six to eight a day," said Randolph Alles, who became Secret Service director barely a month ago.

He spoke the day after comedian Kathy Griffin was strongly condemned for posing in photographs holding up a likeness of a bloody severed head resembling Trump. She later apologized. Officials have declined to discuss her case, but such actions in the past have normally resulted in a visit from Secret Service agents to assess a person's intent.
