Washington: 

US President Donald Trump has said that he is "not concerned at all" about the alleged espionage at Mar-a-Lago, days after the Secret Service arrested a Chinese woman with a flash drive allegedly containing malware from his high-security resort in Florida.

Yujing Zhang, 32, has been charged with making false statements to a federal officer and entering a restricted property after she visited Mar-a-Lago on March 30, according to the Department of Justice.

According to CNN, the security breach is being seen as a possible espionage effort.

Asked about the reports on the Chinese espionage, Donald Trump told reporters at the White House: "Well, I saw the story. Haven't spoken to anybody about it, other than I had a brief meeting. Gave me a little bit of information".

"No, I am not concerned at all," he said on Wednesday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the issue.

"We have very good control... And it's getting better. Frankly, what we're doing with cyber is a story in itself," the US President said.

"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. I think that particular woman did a very, very good job. She was able to see things that other people were not," Donald Trump said.

The woman arrested by the Secret Service is now facing the consequences of whatever she had in mind, he said.

"Secret Service has done a fantastic job from day one. Very happy with them," the US President added.

An arrest document in the federal district court of Palm Beach, Florida, said the woman tried to gain entry into Mar-a-Lago, first presenting herself as a member and saying she was headed to the pool - despite not having a swimsuit. Then, she claimed to be attending a non-existent Chinese-American friendship event.

Secret Service agents at the scene found four cellphones, a laptop computer, an external hard drive and a thumb drive that "contained malicious software", according to the document.
