Mike Pence's New Hampshire meetings have been cancelled as he has been summoned to the White House due to an emergency, NBC reported.
"Something came up that required the vice president to remain in DC. There is no cause for concern. Everybody's fine", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters.
The plane of the US vice president had been scheduled to land in Manchester, New Hampshire at around 11:25 am (15:40 GMT). However, the plane was allegedly turned around due to an unknown emergency.
"Just told it is not an 'emergency' (1st word used) that the VP is sent back to DC. Now being told it is a 'diversion'. No explanation yet of what that means", an NBC journalist tweeted.
Michael Pence is the 48th and current Vice President of the United States. He served as the 50th governor of Indiana from 2013 to 2017 and as a member of the United States House of Representatives from 2001 to 2013.
