US Vice President Kamala Harris’s aircraft was compelled to land quickly after take-off on Sunday on account of a technical drawback on her option to Guatemala for her first worldwide journey.
“I’m good. I’m good,” Harris instructed reporters, giving a thumbs-up after exiting the aircraft when it returned to Joint Base Andrews on the outskirts of Washington. “We all said a little prayer, but we’re good.”
Harris’s spokeswoman Symone Sanders stated that the vp would swap planes and no main delays in her itinerary have been anticipated.
“It is a technical issue. There are no major safety concerns,” Sanders stated.
A journalist onboard reported “an unusual noise” from the touchdown gear when the aircraft — often called Air Force Two — took off, however stated that the touchdown was “completely normal.”
Harris will go to Guatemala and Mexico this week, bringing a message of hope to a area hammered by Covid-19 and which is the supply of many of the undocumented migrants looking for entry to the United States.
Harris is taking her first journey overseas as President Joe Biden’s deputy with an eye fixed in direction of tackling the basis causes of migration from the area — one of many thorniest points going through the White House.
