Kobe Bryant dead: Trump reacts, calling it ‘terrible news’

President Trump on Sunday reacted to NBA superstar Kobe Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash, calling it “terrible news.”

“Reports are that basketball great Kobe Bryant and three others have been killed in a helicopter crash in California. That is terrible news!” the president tweeted.

Trump’s tweet came hours after reports that Bryant, 41, was killed as his helicopter went down in Calabasas, Calif. on Sunday.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said all five onboard had died but did not confirm the identities of the other passengers.
