US Vice President Mike Pence cancelled his trip to New Hampshire, where he was supposed to visit a drug addiction treatment center, Tuesday. The reason for an abrupt cancelation is yet unknown, and government officials’ comments are just extending the mystery, reported the USA TODAY Saturday.
Pence’s spokeswoman said that “something came up that required the @VP to remain in Washington, DC.” She added that the trip would be rescheduled.
White House officials confirmed that the trip was canceled not for medical issues. Marc Short, Pence’s aide, also told the reporters that the problem which had occurred was not a national security one, nor it was a health concern or a personal issue.
US President Donald Trump commented on the matter on Friday and told the reporters that “there was a very interesting problem that they had in New Hampshire.”
“I can’t tell you about it. But it had nothing to do with the White House,” Trump said. “There was a problem up there.” He added that it will be known “in about a week or two.”
