"Now, investigators with the FBI Counterintelligence Division in South Florida are trying to figure out who Zhang is, whether she is involved in a possible Chinese intelligence mission and whether there are links to Yang's social events at Trump's Mar-a-Lago", the newspaper said.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed a recent alleged breach of his Mar-a-Lago property, saying he was "not concerned" about the incident. No, I think that was just a fluke situation and I think that the person sitting at the front desk did a very good job, to be honest with you.

The Mar-a-Lago staff initially allowed Zhang to gain access the property, following the first physical screening by agents, the Secret Service claims.

She allegedly was told by "Charles" to talk to Trump's family about Chinese-American economic relations.

The Washington Post reported Trump responded that he was not anxious about potential espionage, since the Secret Service does its job well.

The Communist Party newspaper Global Times, known for its strident nationalism, ran a lengthy report on the Zhang and Yang cases, accusing the US media of hyping them as examples of Chinese "Trojan horses" entering Mar-a-Lago out of an excess of "Cold War thinking". Agents were later summoned and they say Zhang began arguing during an interview.

Federal officials believe that Zhang is from China, although she was carrying passports that said "Republic of China" - the official name for Taiwan, according to the criminal complaint filed by the Secret Service. On Saturday, March 30, 2019, a woman carrying two Chinese passports and a device containing computer malware lied to Secret Service agents and briefly gained admission to the club over the weekend during his Florida visit, federal prosecutors allege in court documents. "I think, probably, we will see what happens, where she is from, who she is", President Trump told reporters.

Trump said Tuesday he's waiting for more information about the incident.

The woman was arrested over the weekend after she told conflicting stories about why she was at Mar-a-Lago.

And on Wednesday, some Congressional Democrats wrote to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding answers.
