    President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka traveled to Dover Air Force Base in the US state of Delaware for the arrival of the remains of a US commando killed in Yemen on Sunday, according to a White House pool report.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The announcement came in the wake of a pool report saying Trump left the White House on Marine One with Ivanka, with no information released on their destination.

    "At 2:58 p.m. [7:58 p.m. GMT] Ivanka boarded the executive helicopter first, followed by her father, who saluted the Marine as he started up the stairs," the report stated. "At 3 p.m., the engines fired up, and two minutes later Marine One lifted off from the South Lawn."

    Later, the White House released a new report, clarifying the situation.

    "POTUS [president of the United States] is arriving shortly or has already arrived in Marine One at Dover Air Force Base for arrival of remains of a US commando killed early Sunday in Yemen during a raid on Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula," the report stated.
