Top Trump Donor-s Entire Family Killed in Plane Crash

A prominent Trump donor’s family members were killed in a plane crash on Sunday when their private travelled through restricted airspace.

John Rumpel said his “entire family” was on board the Cessna Citation, which crashed close to the Montebello, Virginia on Sunday.

Rumpel’s daughter, 2-year-old granddaughter, and her nanny were among those killed in the plane crash, The New York Times reported.

The daughter was identified as Adina Azarian, 49.

The Daily Mail also reported that before the plane crash, the Trump donor’s daughter, 19, died in a scuba diving accident.

According to federal records cited by The Daily Beast, the jet was owned by Encore Motors of Melbourne, Florida, which Rumpel and his wife own.

The private jet was intercepted by two F-16 jets after flying over restricted airspace in Washington, D.C.

Six jets were scrambled in response to the incursion; however, just two “inspected” the private jet, North American Aerospace Defense Command said.

The sonic boom caused by the scrambling fighters startled residents across the District, Maryland, and Virginia around 3:10 p.m.,” the Post reported.

The jets also deployed flares in an attempt to get the attention of the unresponsive Cessna’s pilot, who appeared to have lost consciousness after becoming incapacitated.

The jet appeared to be flying on autopilot.

Federal officials confirmed that Cessna was not shot down.

“We know nothing about the crash,” Rumpel told the Post. “We are talking to the FAA now … I’ve got to keep the line clear.”

Rumpel told the Times that if the plane had lost cabin pressure, “they all just would have gone to sleep and never woke up.”

“I don’t think they’ve found the wreckage yet,” Rumpel told the Times.

“It descended at 20,000 feet a minute, and nobody could survive a crash from that speed.”

“Data from flight tracking service Flightradar24 shows a plane matching the Citation’s description and flight path reaching Long Island before turning around,” the Post reported.

“The plane flew directly over Washington before the data ends near Staunton, Va.”

A spokeswoman for Virginia State Police, Corinne Geller, told The Post that first responders found no evidence of survivors when they located the crash.

Rumpel has a history of donating to high-profile Republican candidates, including former President Donald Trump and numerous state Republican parties, according to Open Secrets.
