I don’t think that they actually do. I would think that they do have security details, you just can’t see them.

Many times security can be more effective if they are “under cover” or blend in with the crowd. That way they can have a bigger picture of what is happening than if they were right up near the person.

I would be willing to bet they have people close up AND far away who are protecting them.

I promise POTUS isn’t going anywhere in public without guys with guns. They just are being unobtrusive. Helps to perpetuate the idea that the political figure is a “man of the people”. They really aren’t.
