According to Fox News reporter Rob DiRienzo, Vice President Mike Pence was called back to the White House for an "emergency" on Tuesday morning. "It's no cause for alarm", his spokeswoman Alyssa Farah said in a statement.
"A senior administration official reiterates there should be no cause for alarm".
The White House had said earlier that he would be taking part in a roundtable discussion with former patients at Granite Recovery Center, a rehab facility in Salem.
This is a breaking news story and will be updated accordingly. However, a spokesman for the vice president told the Boston Globe that there was no emergency.
The White House would not say what issue arose to keep Pence in place.
His chief of staff, Marc Short, told ABC News Pence got on the plane at Joint Base Andrews, and was called back before the plane was ready to take off but he would not specify why. "The Vice President was asked to return to Washington, so at this time we're gonna cancel today's event", Gentry said from the podium. "Afterward, he was scheduled to speak about New Hampshire's opioid crisis", the outlet noted.
"The [Vice President] never left Washington, DC".
"Something came up that required the [Vice President] to remain in Washington, DC. We'll reschedule NH shortly".
Pence was set to deliver remarks at 1 p.m. It was about to land and they had to call them back to Washington.
But Farah later denied that it was an "emergency callback", saying Pence never left Washington.
