AIR Force Two was forced to return due to a "technical issue" just 30 minutes after Kamala Harris took off on Sunday for her first international trip as vice president.
Harris is traveling to Guatemala and Mexico even as she is criticized for not having traveled to the US border in the months since President Joe Biden tipped her as border czar.
The plane returned safely back to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland shortly after 3pm EST.
The technical issue is said to have involved “no major safety concerns.”
The vice president gave reporters a thumbs-up as she arrived safely back on the tarmac.
“I’m good, I’m good. We all said a little prayer, but we’re good,” Harris said after disembarking the plane.
