The U.S. military is announcing that an F-16 jet intercepted a plane around 12:30 p.m. Saturday flying “without proper clearances or communications” in the temporary flight restriction zone around the president’s Bedminster, N.J. golf course, where he is spending the weekend.
Continental U.S. North American Aerospace Defence Command says the intercepted aircraft landed at an airport in Pittstown, N.J. without incident, where local law enforcement met the pilot.
Trump arrived in New Jersey Friday afternoon and is scheduled to depart for Washington Sunday. There was no immediate reaction from the White House, but Trump tweeted critically several times Saturday afternoon about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
