President Trump Attends Memorial for Secret Service Agent

President Trump Attends Memorial for Secret Service Agent

One of the Secret Service agents protecting U.S. President Donald Trump during his trip to Scotland died yesterday from a severe stroke.

The agent, who had served in the agency for 19 years, suffered a stroke on Sunday, while securing the president from threats during his visit to the United Kingdom last week.

A spokesman for the Secret Service said: 'We are incredibly grateful for the emergency medical service providers and physicians in Scotland who are providing much needed critical care'.

"Our hearts are filled with sadness over the loss of a beloved and devoted special agent, husband, and father", Trump said in a statement. "At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by members of his immediate family and his extended Secret Service family".

"Prayers for the Remagen family".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared her condolences via tweet on Wednesday. "You have all treated Special Agent Remagen as one of your own, and for that we are eternally grateful".

President Trump commended his military service, commenting that he served for five years in United States Marines.

A 19-year veteran of the Secret Service, Remagen's body was returned to the US on Wednesday.

Alongside Trump's team a major operation was organised by Police Scotland with thousands of cops present during Trump's stay at the golf resort and hotel - as well as keeping protestors in check. Trump released a tribute to the special agent and the Secret Service, stating that "we are forever in their debt".

The agent's identity and what he was doing at the time was not provided by the Secret Service.

On Tuesday, the U.S. secret service confirmed the death "with great sadness and regret" and described the agent as a "dedicated professional of the highest order".

Remagen was only 42 years old.
