Fox News reports that the president had not yet passed through the rotunda as the woman shouted the expletive.
The shouting inside the Capitol rotunda comes as tensions are running high amid the Trump administration’s decision to separate undocumented children from their families at detention centers along the border.
Another Trump administration official, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson, also faced the wrath of hecklers on Tuesday when a group of people shouted “shame” at her while she was eating at a Mexican restaurant in Washington D.C.
