A Chinese national was arrested after she illegally entered President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida March 30 and was found to be carrying a thumb drive containing malware as well as a laptop, a “hard drive type” device and four cell phones. 

Yujing Zhang allegedly gained access to the property, claiming to be attending a United Nations Chinese American Association event, which the Miami Herald said was hawked by Li “Cindy” Lang. Lang owns a company that promises access to President Trump and who was recently in the news after New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was arrested for soliciting prostitution in a massage parlor she once owned.

After being removed and detained by Secret Service agents, Zhang said she’d been invited to the event via WeChat by her friend “Charles” and was to “attempt to speak with a member of the President's family about Chinese and American foreign economic relations."
