President Trump has often criticized New York City's LaGuardia Airport, and he might like it even less after a minor accident involving his iconic private jet Wednesday. In what the AP describes as a "fender bender," a corporate jet trying to park at the airport after arriving from Long Island clipped the wing of Trump's parked Boeing 757. The president—who frequently used the private jet during his campaign but has been traveling on Air Force One since—was not on board. Nobody was injured and airport operations not affected, the New York Post reports. It's not clear how much damage was done to Trump's plane, which has his name in large letters on the side and boasts 24-karat gold-plated fixtures and leather seats. (He bought the jet for $100 million in 2011.)
