President Trump Leaves White House After Announcing Hamza Bin Laden Death
President Donald Trump left the White House and headed for the Trump National Golf Course in Virginia, Saturday, September 14, after announcing the death of Hamza bin Laden, the son of late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
The White House said Saturday that the son of al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden has been killed in a U.S. counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region.
The White House said in a statement, “The loss of Hamza bin Ladin (Laden) not only deprives al-Qaida of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group.”
The younger bin Laden was described by the White House as “the high-ranking al-Qaida member” who was “responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups.”
