A Pennsylvania doctor arrested with weapons and ammunition at President Donald Trump's Washington hotel wanted to meet the president and bring down "big pharmacy", authorities said on Friday.

Police say that the Pennsylvania man who was arrested on Wednesday at the Trump International Hotel for having unregistered weapons and 90 rounds of ammo in his auto, told an acquaintance that he wanted to bring down "big pharmacy and big business medicine" and planned to stay in D.C. until he met with President Donald Trump.

Moles also faces a District charge of unlawful transport of a loaded firearm in an unlocked passenger compartment of a vehicle, punishable by up to 1 year in prison.

It is not known whether Moles will be released from DC custody pending trial.

Dr. Bryan Moles is due back in federal court in Washington, D.C. today for a second hearing.

The judge ordered Moles to stay in a D.C. hotel overnight and appear before federal judge on Friday.

Dr. Bryan Moles was carrying enough ammunition inside his auto to resemble either Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh or Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph "going on a camping trip", according to Washington, D.C. police investigators.

The charging document said that Moles left voice mails with an "acquaintance" before arriving in D.C. and said he was heading to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and would stay until he met with Trump.

"Moles stated that he had withdrawn around $10,000 in order to live the life he always wanted before it was too late", the affidavit says.

Posts on Moles' Facebook page indicate he's a Trump supporter.

The police chief said his department and the Secret Service had received information that an adult male was travelling to the District of Columbia, possibly the Trump International Hotel, armed with weapons.

The court documents describe Moles as a recovering alcoholic and marijuana addict suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

When a commenter replied, "Trump all the way".

Moles enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1992 and served until August 1996 as a hospital corpsman at Camp Lejeune, N.C., Navy records show.

Moles' friends and family disputed accusations that he is mentally distrubed and said that the weapons charges can be chalked up to a misunderstanding about Washington's gun rules.

Newsham declined to comment on what may have motivated Moles.

Moles said he will seek mental health treatment from the Department of Veterans Affairs in Atlanta. She said Moles "cannot be a more standup man". He also said that he owns over 20 guns at his home and had experience with explosives and pipe bombs, but "hadn't messed around with them in years".

Moles is a physician who practices emergency medicine at a hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania.
