Trump plane made emergency landing after weekend speech to GOP donors

Once the plane was on the ground, the RNC scrambled and reached out to a donor and found the former president another plane. Trump eventually landed in Palm Beach around 3 a.m. Sunday.

Spokespersons for Trump and the RNC declined to comment.

Trump delivered a rambling 90-minute speech before donors Saturday at the Four Seasons Hotel in New Orleans, where he spoke on a range of topics. According to a recording of the speech, he jokingly suggested the U.S. “bomb the shit out of Russia” with planes bearing the Chinese flag; called one of his nemeses in Congress, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, a “watermelon head;” and called another critic, attorney George Conway, a “son of a bitch.”

Trump also said he was “looking … very, very strongly” at the possibility of waging a 2024 comeback bid for the presidency.
