THE niece of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden protested President Joe Biden's summit with Vladimir Putin this week by waving a "Trump won" flag.
Noor Bin Ladin, 33, claimed she almost faced arrest after organizing a pro-Trump boat flotilla on Lake Geneva on Tuesday, a day before the highly anticipated meeting.

The Swiss national, who has been a vocal Trump supporter for years, claimed on her social media accounts that two police boats were sent out to stop their small boat as she protested.
She was pictured in a white bikini holding up a "Trump won" banner while another small boat carried a woman waving "Trump 2020" and American flags.
Other pictures on Bin Ladin's Instagram claim to show Swiss police officers in front of her boat as she still waves the banner.
"Switzerland does not want the world to see this," she claimed in the caption.
Bin Ladin, who spells her last name differently to her uncle, blasted the summit as a "joke" on Twitter as "TRUMP WON and all of this is theatrics."
"Joe Biden showed the whole world what a joke he is," she added.
The self-proclaimed activist also hit back at Biden's comments in his press conference following the meeting with Putin.
The US president had claimed that Putin will face consequences that are "devastating to Russia" if jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny dies.
"What about the consequences due to the Capitol Police killing Ashli Babbitt on 1/6 ?" she hit back, referencing a Trump supporter who died after being shot by a cop as she rushed the US Capitol on January 6.
Bin Ladin has slammed claims that the violent riot by a pro-Trump rob that stormed through Capitol buildings was an "insurrection" and has called media coverage of the event a "hoax."

She publicly announced her support for Trump last year in the lead-up to the 2020 election in her first interview with the New York Post.
After the interview, Bin Ladin claimed she has been "attacked more for supporting Donald Trump than being related to the 9/11 mastermind."
She confirmed that she has "lost a few so-called friends" since she endorsed the former president in September.
In the interview, she claimed to have been a Trump supporter "since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015" and that he was the only person who could prevent a future 9/11.
The 33-year-old said she was compelled to address Americans because she is "highly distressed by the blatant erosion at various levels of your most basic individual rights and freedoms as guaranteed by your Bill of Rights, from arbitrary censorship of speech to unlawful, politically motivated abuses of justice."
She also noted that she is an "unlikely messenger at first glance," but that her "heart is in the right place."
Ladin then went on to praise Trump as "the only leader who can save us from a bleak future."
Bin Ladin was just 14 years old when her uncle orchestrated the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks – which killed nearly 3,000 Americans.
Her father, Yeslam bin Ladin, is the older, half-brother of Osama. Her mother, Carmen Dufour, is a Swiss author, according to the New York Post.
After the 9/11 attacks, her mother penned a 2004 book about her life within the bin Laden family called, Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia.
Noor and her two sisters were raised in Switzerland.
Biden said he had been firm with Putin during a press conference after his meeting with the Russian leader.
"I told President Putin my agenda is not against Russia or anyone else," Biden began.
"It's for the American people.
"I also told him that no President of the United States could keep faith with the American people if they did not speak out to defend our democratic values," Biden continued.
The US President said that Russia is "not able to dictate what happens in the world."
