Helicopter carrying Ivanka and Jared returns to airport after engine failure


President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, were traveling from Washington, D.C. to New York Thursday afternoon aboard a Trump-owned helicopter, when one of the engines suddenly failed, forcing the helicopter to return to D.C., CNN reported Monday morning.

Two law enforcement sources reportedly related the information to CNN, who said the two-engine helicopter safely made it back to the Ronald Reagan National Airport, and the couple took a commercial flight to New York instead.

Twitter has lit up with snarky remarks from the left, some not suitable for printing, and many ignoring the fact that it was a Trump-owned helicopter and not a government-owned helicopter.

CNN reportedThe aircraft was a Sikorsky helicopter owned by the Trump Organization, according to information recorded by the aviation website LiveATC.net.

Before the engine failure, the plan was for the chopper to take the couple and a member of their security detail to a Manhattan helipad, one of the sources said. A spokesman for the couple had no comment on the incident.

One Twitter user called out the way CNN featured the story in their headlines:
