Friday, May 22, Kayleigh McEnany paid the price for an excess of zeal. In an attempt to illustrate Donald Trump’s generosity at a press conference, the White House spokesperson unintentionally exposed the data of the President’s personal bank account.
New blunder at the White House. Once is not custom, it is not Donald Trump who is behind it, but his new spokesperson, Kayleigh McEnany. Friday, May 22, at a press conference, the latter showed the cameras the check for 100,000 dollars made by the american president to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, to help the fight against coronavirus. A gesture that was immediately noted by Internet users, since this check contains all of Donald Trump’s personal bank details.
Unsurprisingly, the photos in the document went around social media in a matter of hours. A golden opportunity for hackers to hack into the president’s account, especially since an American administration official explained to the New york times that the White House “don’t use[ait] never dummy checks in [ses] briefings “. However, awkwardness McEnany’s should not have serious repercussions, as the president and CEO of the Identity Theft Resource Center, Eva Velasquez, said.
“Make an example”
According to the latter, Donald Trump, unlike an ordinary citizen, certainly benefits from strengthened protection systems on its bank account, making it impossible to hack based on a simple photo. However, Eva Velasquez recognized that he was not “not wise to share this information publicly”, emphasizing the lesson to be learned from this blunder. “This is one of those situations where it is very important to set an example”, she assured. No doubt Kayleigh McEnany, freshly appointed on April 7, will remember.
