Vice President Kamala Harris' much anticipated "foreign policy" trip to Guatemala to meet with leaders there about what can be done to stem the influx of illegal immigrants that are crossing into the U.S. from that country, got off to a bad start with Air Force 2 having to turn around because of "technical issue" and was then being greeted by pro-Trump, anti-Biden Guatemalan protestors.
"It is a technical issue. There are no major safety concerns,'' said Symone Sanders, spokeswoman for VP Harris.
Harris shook off the midair scare, telling reporters after she deplaned that "we all said a little prayer, but we're good."
But after boarding a new plane and taking the 4 1/2 hour flight to Guatemala, protestors were at the Guatemalan Air Force base waiting for the vice president with open arms and signs. Big signs.
