“It might not have had anything to do with me,” the president said.

Mr Trump acknowledged it was an unusual situation, but praised the professionalism of the USSS.

A journalist asked Mr Trump if he was rattled by the events.

“Do I seem rattled?” he replied.

The president added:

“It’s unfortunate that this is the world, but the world’s always been a dangerous place. It’s not something that’s unique.

“The world has been, if you look back over the centuries, the world has been a dangerous place, very dangerous place, and it will continue, I guess, for a period of time.”
