Obama: Secret Service does a 'great job'

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says the Secret Service does "a great job." He says he is grateful for the "sacrifices" the service performs on his behalf and on behalf of his family.

Obama made his comments Monday in the aftermath of Friday's security breach, when an intruder managed to jump the north fence of the White House and escape capture until he was inside the North Portico entrance of the presidential mansion.

The Secret Service has launched a review of security practices. Earlier, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama has complete confidence in the Secret Service.

Obama made his remarks while signing a declaration promoting service for children in need.
