Kamala Harris' plane forced to return to USA soil following technical issue

A plane carrying U.S. vice president Kamala Harris on her first foreign trip was forced to return to base after just 30 minutes following a "technical difficulty". "There are no major safety concerns", Sanders said, adding that the vice president would be switching planes to continue the trip.

"It is a technical issue".

"I'm good, I'm good".

During her first foreign trip as vice president, Harris is expected to meet with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei on Monday.

Her spokesperson, Symone Sanders, told reporters traveling with Harris that it was technical issue with the original plane and there were "no major safety concerns".

President Joe Biden appointed Harris in March to lead the diplomatic outreach, just as the administration was dealing with a massive surge in migration at the border.

When the plane returned, Harris exited and flashed a double thumbs up to the press, and said, "I'm good".

Harris' worldwide trip comes amid the USA border crisis, alongside Mexico and Guatemala.
