That was all we had to go off of for a few hours before President Trump officially announced some major news over the weekend.

Lucky for you, we have the full story now, so we won't leave you hanging with nothing more than a tweet. He's right though, this was pretty big.

Here's what's trending on ClickOrlando.com:

🔸 ISIS leader killed in US military raid

The man White House officials called the "world's number one terrorist leader" was killed during a raid carried out by U.S. forces in northern Syria. That was the big news President Trump shared with the world Sunday morning. Officials say he "blew himself up" but there's a lot more to it. Find out how the raid unfolded and what it could mean for the future of the Islamic State.


🗳️ It's elections -- boogie, woogie, woogie

But yeah, it's election season once again, with early voting starting as early as Monday in some Central Florida counties. See if early voting is available where you live and what you need to know before casting your ballot.

🎃 Halloween? More like Hall-o-rain

🥧 Holidays are here

And so are the sweet treats that come with them. Let's be honest, you've probably already broken into the Halloween stash (or, at least I have) and before you know it, it'll be time to feast for Thanksgiving before we just go completely buck wild in December. That's pretty much how my holiday eating habits tend to go, but this year, why don't we try holding each other accountable, so we stay at least somewhat on track? Check out these tips to enjoying your favorite holiday treats while maintaining good health.
