"I think the President has made his position known", Sanders said, adding that the press "frequently lower the level of conversation in this country" and that "repeatedly, the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger".

And despite our utter contempt for Bin Laden and all those who aided him, if her statements in this interview are to be taken as honest, it appears that his mother never saw the change in her son coming - nor did she have much power to stop it.

President Donald Trump's spokesperson, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, refused to answer whether she agrees with him that the news media is the "enemy of the people" during Thursday's briefing - despite being asked by reporters several times. Instead, she insists, he was "brainwashed" as a young man.

Alia Ghanem said her son - who was born into one of Saudi Arabia's wealthiest families - was "brainwashed" in his early 20s.

"I'm actually going to give your network some advice, if you have an open mind and an open heart", Hannity said.

"Sadly, the threats and harassment aren't stopping, journalists get them every day", Tur said, noting that the vitriol has only increased since Trump urged his crowds to yell and scream at the press during his rallies on the campaign trail. "I would always tell him to stay away from them, and he would never admit to me what he was doing. because he loved me so much". In a new interview, she questioned why he wanted to "throw it all away".

The Bin Laden family remain one of the most influential families in Saudi Arabia after gaining vast wealth in construction.

Ms Ghanem was interviewed along with bin Laden's two half-brothers and the man who raised all three children, Mohammed al Attas.

Acosta pressed Sanders on the issue, bringing up Ivanka Trump's rebuke of her father's war on the press. "They tried as much as they could to maintain control over the family".

After the September 11 attacks, some members of bin Laden's family remained in touch while others led a quiet life under the supervision of the Saudi government and worldwide intelligence agencies.

Osama was shot dead by a US Navy Seal team in Pakistan in 2011 and his son, Hamza, who jihadis have hailed as the "heir" to the leadership of al-Qaeda, previous year called on Muslims around the world to launch revenge terror attacks on the US.

"We thought everyone was over this", Bin Laden's brother Hassan told the Guardian.

Mr. Acosta replied, "I'm sorry that happened to you".

He said: "It was a very unusual feeling".

"... We knew from the beginning (that it was Osama), within the first 48 hours". Think twice about what you are doing.

"The Guardian quotes experts as saying that Bin Laden had "deliberately" decided that the majority of the 9/11 attacks that targeted the U.S. in 2001 - and consequently changed the whole world - to be Saudi citizens" as he was "convinced that [this was] going to turn the West against his. home country". "Our family overseas all came back to Saudi". Don't retake the steps of your father.

After years on the run, Bin Laden was eventually found in 2011 in Pakistan and shot dead by a US Navy Seal team. "You are entering frightful parts of your soul".
