MOSCOW (Sputnik) — There is no conflict between US President-elect Donald Trump's private security team and Secret Service agents, as the latter has "sole responsibility" for protecting the president and his family, US Secret Service Chief Joseph Clancy said.
"There is no friction at all. They are not in our meetings. They are not armed. They are more of a staff function than a security function. We don't interact with them," Clancy said Saturday in an interview with CNN.
According to Clancy, much more personnel would be needed to ensure security of Trump's family due to a big number of his family members and plans of some of the them to stay in Trump's Fifth Avenue residence in New York City and not in the White House.
