Reporters on Air Force One traveling from New Jersey back to D.C. with the president say the jet almost collided with what appeared to be a drone while on descent to Joint Base Andrews on Sunday:
@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. pic.twitter.com/roDFgpp4XH
