Fighter Jets Intercept Unauthorized Aircraft Over Trump Rally Alarming Secret Service

 

Fighter jets were sent to intercept an unauthorized aircraft that was flying into restricted airspace over a rally for President Donald Trump in Bullhead City, Arizona, on Wednesday. Secret Service agents on the scene were on high alert and moved closer to protect the president just in case the plane was intending to attack, although they did not get on the stage or interrupt the speech. Trump was unmoved by the incident, and told his gathered supporters that the military was just doing a fly over to “show off.”

“Oh, look at that. Look, look, look. Look at that. They gave the president a little display,” Trump said.

It is not clear if Trump was just saying this to avoid a panic in the crowd, or if he was unaware that there was an unauthorized aircraft in the area. Flares were also shot as a warning to the airplane that they were in restricted airspace.

John Cornelio, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) told CNN that an F-16 aircraft was to investigate a small airplane that had entered the airspace above the President’s rally.

“The violating aircraft was non-responsive to initial intercept procedures, but established radio communications after NORAD aircraft deployed signal flares. The violating aircraft was escorted out of the restricted area by the NORAD aircraft without further incident,” Cornelio said.

The Secret Service is currently investigating the incident, but a spokesperson for the agency claims that the President was not in danger at the time. However, there is no indication that the person in the small airplane was apprehended or even identified so at this point it is not possible to determine what the pilot intended to do, or if it was just a simple mistake.

Trump told the gathered audience that the jet above was “about four days old” and then talked about his support for the military.

“I love that sound, I love it, You don’t know what I went through to get those suckers up there — I had to get that money from the Democrats,” Trump said.

The crowd responded by chanting “U-S-A” and one man could be heard shouting, “That’s the sound of freedom!”

While it is not entirely clear what was happening in Arizona, Trump’s opponents have sought to undermine his campaign in a variety of creative ways. Earlier this week, Trump’s campaign website for re-election was briefly hacked on Tuesday evening, displaying a Monero cryptocurrency scam.

The hacked page below was displayed directing visitors to send the Monero cryptocurrency to vote on whether or not the hackers should reveal alleged sensitive data proving their claims that Trump was involved in various crimes. The hacked page was displayed in the “About” section of Trump’s campaign website which posted an image that made it appear as if the FBI had seized the site.

Trump’s campaign website was back online shortly after the partial attack, which took place on Tuesday night. The Trump campaign said no sensitive data was obtained in the hack, but a notice on the site claimed otherwise.

Election Day is on November 3, 2020, which is now just days away. The results are expected to be highly contested, and some experts suspect that it could take several days to get the final results.
