Donald Trump’s Secret Service agent DIES after stroke on President Scotland visit

A U.S. Secret Service agent who accompanied President Donald Trump during his overseas trip has died, the White House announced.

A spokesman for the Secret Service said: 'We are incredibly grateful for the emergency medical service providers and physicians in Scotland who are providing much needed critical care'. He was surrounded by immediate family and Secret Service colleagues.

Remagen suffered a stroke Monday during Mr. Trump's trip to Belgium, the United Kingdom, Scotland and Finland. Earlier, Remagen served with the U.S. Marine Corps for five years.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted, "Prayers for the Remagen family".

Agent Remagen, who Vice President Pence called "a courageous American", leaves behind his wife and two children. "Melania and I are deeply grateful for his lifetime of devotion, and today, we pause to honor his life and 24 years of service to our nation".

"The State Department frequently assists other US agencies, including the Secret Service, with transportation arrangements and in making hotel bookings overseas", a State Department spokesperson told ABC News.

He said he meant to say "why Russian Federation wouldn't have" but also tweeted: 'Some people HATE the fact that I got along with President Putin of Russian Federation.

But Washington DC-based watchdog the Campaign Legal Centre argued the president had used his visit to Britain on official business to promote the golf resort, known as Trump Turnberry.

Secret Service reported Tuesday that Remagen suffered a "severe cerebrovascular accident" Sunday. Trump released a tribute to the special agent and the Secret Service, stating that "we are forever in their debt". The last agent to die while in service was Christopher J. Smith, who died of a heart attack in 2005.

The 42-year-old law enforcement officer died of a stroke while on a protective duty assignment in Scotland, where the president was golfing over the weekend.

The page has already raised more than $99,000 for the family.
