There is no word on his motivation for the act, but the White House has entered a state of lock down after the suicidal act.

A man previously tried to self immolate outside the White House in 2017, citing frustrations with the then-newly elected president.

UPDATE:

Secret Service reports that the man approached the White House in a motorized wheel chair and set his outer jacket on fire. Uniformed officers immediately rushed to the location, extinguished the fire, and administered first aid to the man.

He sustained non-life threatening injuries and is being treated at a local hospital.
