The world’s #1 in Air superiority and has the most jets and planes in the world but failed to scramble at least ONE jet to intercept any of the four “Hijacked airliners” on 911.

CLICK BAIT...this is a back door attempt to highlight "how much President Trump" travels.

Seems like a waste

Americans...this people abeyed to a dark organization.
Tony Franklin (2 days ago)
Should get some properly quick jets to respond, the F-16 is hardly rapid response! There are some mothballed Lightnings here and there that would blow away these little toys as they did everything else in the sky BITD.

The (((Globalists))) are capable of performing extreme measures on the hapless goyim. ...what we have been led to believe, by the media, Government Church and Schools is a LIE. *NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS* The CIA and FBI have been corrupt since before they killed Kennedy. And what your witnessing with Trump is the Deep State FINALLY being exposed......for the Satanic, baby blood drinking PEDOPHILES that they are. FACT.

Lets ignore their lack of action on the 9/11...moving right along, that wasnt a few feet away, that was miles away. Also, are they allowed to show this video to the public? This violates State Security confidentiality does it not? Now you just showed the terrorists what you do. Well done on giving them the heads up, genius.

It was a long while back but a piper cub type plane got powdered over area 51. The pilot didn't think they would really shoot a missile at him.

Such a huge waste if resources to secure a moron
MojoMacer (5 days ago)
My question is, why did this reporter think this was a good idea.
Traci Taylor (5 days ago)
Trying to implant in your brain that every weekend the President travels to his other homes and it's costing us a ton of money, funny I never heard any news station talk about how our President doesn't take a paycheck.
Jason Rogers (5 days ago)
Pure BS do it and don’t tell them then you’ll see what happens. Wouldn’t some choppers be better? F16 was leaned way back to go that slow
Recep Tayyip Erdogan (5 days ago)
you cant shoot down a big plane in sky flying over a crowded city unless you have a real reason behind it bcs There will be too many casualties. on the ground

The Nightmare (6 days ago)
I haven't looked it up, but are there stats that show how much vacation time he's taken compared to Obama, or even other presidents before Obama? Seems like people rag on him for going to his resorts, but there's no context.

That reminds me of Border Patrol armed to the teeth flexing their mussels at lost tourists near the Canadian border. But when the real bad guys arrive they are nowhere to be found...
ANDREW BULMER (6 days ago)
They can do that for the president but did nothing for 911 if they was that fast they mite of saved a lot of life's

Cezzna 🤔🤔🤔
Nick worster (6 days ago)
It's funny how they would have never said this when Obama was President
k1llamain (6 days ago)
Another sneaky way to slam trump instead of just providing news. Lots of slimey jabs through this guys comments on this vid. Orders coming down from the top. Peon "reporters" saying whats fed to them. Dispicable.

Epic fail at being a troll
marcia menage (7 days ago)
Well in 1952 7 UFO type craft hovered over the pentagon for a loooooong time and nothing happened, the same would happen today... in fact any F16 would look stupid next to them as they cannot do right angle turns nor can they travel anywhere near the speed of the UFO/ARV.
Romeo Toro (7 days ago)
The us has the f15 CD and E the only 1s in usaf service later versions only got exported to s korea, saudis,Israel israel operates the most advanced f15 ever just like it opreates the most advanced f35 air force versions
Romeo Toro (7 days ago)
Or they should order brand new f-15 super eagels with the best technology possible order a squad of 12 they can do many jobs be the bodygards of the main leaders and dc airspace they can reach new yourk to quick.
Miguel Ramirez (7 days ago)
Yeah keep spending our money in stupid shows like this
Romeo Toro (7 days ago)
F-16s are awesome but the president of the USA should have the most effective fighter jets like the f-22 which is the best known fighter air superiority jet in the world

At least when Trump works he works for America. When obama worked he worked for iran and Putin.
Jamal Ginsburg (7 days ago)
He didnt work for them. He wanted to please them because he is a weak person. Appeasement never works with strongmen. They will keep coming back for more.
David Allison (8 days ago)

Gareth James (9 days ago)
He would be no loss. Lying, cheating, bride buyer, russian collaborator let his plane fall from the sky.
Jamal Ginsburg (7 days ago)
When did he collaborate with Russia again? Talking to the Russian government as a private citizen businessman about a possible deal in that country isn't collaborating against American interests silly.🤣

Trump clearly doesn't deserve any of this.

Tom Walsh, Sr. (10 days ago)
That was a stupid thing to do. Too bad they didn't shoot you down. Would have made a great video.

High lighting what President Trump owns before he became President, and the amount of time he spends at them, is false and misleading. This does not help the country you love. His transparency is an example of what every law abiding citizen wanted. Yet the crimes this country has done must not be spoken, and he hasn't said a thing. I have serious concerns about who is really trying to divide this country. No it is not Russia, and it is not Trump. It is those that are upset at the set back away from the one world order. I say, To each there own, may your self be true. Love your neighbors you bet, but then they go home. It is a very hard and dirty job trying to bring people up from a third world understanding. It always was, and always will be. Allowing them to run away from their salutations is not the answer, as horrid as it is. If Hillary had gotten in, we would most likely be a war with China and Russia over North Korea. The stage was set with a scare in Hawaii. I thank god we have business man, instead of a woman hounded by fear war mongers. I will look after my yard, and you look after yours. We will all work together towards helping mother earth. By the way, radiation has thousands of years of activity. It is no wander the Cancer rate is higher than ever before. If you can't help. than don't hurt. Love your neighbors, and lets have a party, I mean a summit. Then everyone go's home. If you want to stay, than knock on the front door, but don't sneak in through my back yard. It scares my wife and kids, and I for one don't blame them.! Trump is who and what he is. Just a man, trying to protect his family, and that includes you and me.! No house can stand divided against it's self. Wherefore, together we stand, dived we fall.! I go in peace, and I sincerely hope you do as well ! Be well.!

Trump is stupid. Total puppet, so irrelevant. Thumbs down
David Hahn (10 days ago)
Someone asked about birds strapped with explosives. Not necessary . AF1 is no less susceptible to unarmed birds than any other aircraft. Just ask Sully. With all due respect to the man and the miracle he performed I'm left to ponder if trumps pilots would get off so lucky?????
ShieldArc200 (11 days ago)
Where were they when 911 was happening? Oh that's right, Cheney told them to stand down.....
R Gerard (6 days ago)
+The Internet Dumbshit, you still scramble whether you decide to take them down or not.

I Am Sure, They Are Not Going to Show Anyone What Their Strategy Is......I was Hoping to See the Jet Come From Behind the Plane and Overhead About 40 ft. or So......And Maybe Push Them Down Out of the Sky...

What if aliens fly into the air zone?
ThatOld Hippie (11 days ago)
Yeah, right - but NOT ONE jet scrambled on 9-11 - nor were the antiaircraft missile fired from the pentagon, even though there was very much advanced notice
Joshua Towler (11 days ago)
This is fake..common sense folks.. How would they have cameras on military base? They would shoot it down Proof the government controls media and propaganda.. Research the repeal of the smith-mundt act that allows the government to use propaganda on its own citizens(which its always done btw)
