According to reports, the White House has launched an investigation into a "drone" that almost hit Air Force One while President Donald Trump, Melania, and Barron were on board.
Read on for all the details we have so far.
President Trump has been having some bad luck recently.
via: GettyAnd this "drone" is only making things even worse. Since winning his place in the White House back in 2017, President Trump has continued to divide opinions with his controversial politics and irrational behavior but things haven't really lightened up as we get closer to November.
It's been a strange couple of years, that's for sure.
via: GettyNo one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
But, this wasn't a publicity stunt.
via: GettyDonald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."
And when it came round to election day...The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had their new leader - President Donald Trump.
It's been an eventful few years, to say the least.
via: GettyIt's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country is at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.
Oh, and the infamous Mexican wall still hasn't been built.Though he has announced his plans to divert $7.2 million from the Pentagon for the border wall construction.
The President is no stranger to criticism and controversy...
via: GettyMuch of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.
And, earlier this year...The President was actually impeached.
Trump was charged with 2 offenses.
via: GettyThe first was for abuse of power, and the second was an accusation of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.
But despite his impeachment...
via: GettyTrump continues to hold an awful lot of power and his fan base is still going strong...
Times are now harder than ever for the President...
via: GettySince the coronavirus pandemic took over the world, there's no denying that Trump has handled it awfully.
Our country is now the worst affected in the world...
via: GettyAnd Trump just seems to be completely oblivious to how catastrophic the coronavirus has been for millions of people.
And not to mention the Black Lives Matter movement...
via: GettyPresident Trump has shown no real support for the historic and important movement and he clearly isn't interested in seeing any change for the African American community.
All while others focused on his wig/hair.
via: Getty ImagesPeople are always talking about the President's hair - with millions of people asking the same thing... Is it real?
The answer is yes.
via: GettyThe yellow, meshy-looking froth ball sitting on top of his scalp is actually his own, natural hair, even if the color isn't.
So now that's been put to bed, let's talk about an incident that's happened recently.
via: GettyAccording to reports, the President, his wife, and his son could have been involved in an accident but thankfully were not after a "drone" almost collided with Air Force One while they were on board.
The White House has launched a full investigation on the matter.
via: GettyAs the aircraft proceeded to land in Maryland, a small "drone" of some sort hit it.
Sebastian Smith, AFP White House correspondent later tweeted about the event.
via: GettyHe wrote this: "@realDonaldTrump just landed at Andrews on AF1. Shortly before, while descending, we flew right over a small object, remarkably close to the president’s plane. Resembled a drone though I’m no expert."
Jennifer Jacobs, another reporter, also commented on the issue saying this:
via: Getty"Multiple people on AF1 saw what appeared to be a drone just below the plane as we were descending toward Joint Base Andrews. We came very close to hitting it, per @SebastianAFP, who had a window seat."
The President was returning from Trump National Golf Club when it happened.
via: GettyReports by Bloomberg state that the object was "yellow and black" and looked like a "cross."
But until the full investigation is concluded, no one will really know.
via: GettyAccording to Aviation Pros, a normal drone could not cause too much damage to an aircraft, but it could still cause enough havoc if it shattered a cockpit windshield or damaged an engine.
At least it didn't and the aircraft landed safely at Joint Base Andrews.
