There has been no increase in the number of security threats to President Barack Obama despite the contentious town hall meetings taking place around the country, according to the White House.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs also said Friday there has been no change in the security precautions.
“We haven't viewed any increase in threats, and there's been no change in any of that,” Gibbs said.
Earlier this week, at a town hall in Maryland, a man was detained by the Secret Service for carrying a sign that read “Death to Obama.” At the president's town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Tuesday, another man was spotted carrying a gun outside the venue.
