Mike Pence abruptly returns to White House as reports of ‘emergency’ situation spark online misinformation

Mike Pence abruptly returns to White House as reports of ‘emergency’ situation spark online misinformationVice President Mike Pence was sent back to the White House on Tuesday after originally being scheduled to attend an event on the nationwide opioid crisis in New Hampshire. The development of Mr Pence’s abrupt change in plans was initially reported by Fox News, which stated the vice president was returning to Washington due to an “emergency”. However, officials declined to publicly cite the reason for the change throughout the day, sparking confusion and apparent online misinformation. Marc Short, chief of staff to the vice president, later told reporters there was no emergency and that Mr Pence’s trip to New Hampshire would be rescheduled for a later date. “The vice president was called back to the White House but there’s no cause for alarm,” Mr Short said, adding that Mr Pence’s plane never departed from Washington. Several initial reports had suggested Air Force Two was rerouted back to Washington after having already left the capitol for the opioid event.A reporter on Fox News said the vice president was “about to land in New Hampshire” but “turned around” due to the last-minute change, while another guest on the MSNBC network echoed those claims, saying the plane had been turned around. Still, a senior official reportedly told the White House press pool — a rotating group of reporters covering the president — that “the VP had not left DC and he’s currently at the White House.”Officials also said the change had nothing to do with either Mr Pence or Donald Trump's health. Alyssa Farah, the vice president’s spokesperson, also said there was “no cause for alarm” in a tweet confirming the itinerary change. “Something came up that required the @VP to remain in Washington, DC,” she wrote. “He looks forward to rescheduling the trip to New Hampshire very soon.”The roundtable discussion Mr Pence was scheduled to participate in Manchester, New Hampshire involved patients from the Granite Recovery Centre headquarters. Mr Pence was also reportedly expected to discuss illegal drug trafficking across the state.The White House did not return requests for comment.

Trump OK’d Strikes on Iran but Called Them Off Abruptly When Planes Were Already in the Air

Trump OK’d Strikes on Iran but Called Them Off Abruptly When Planes Were Already in the AirAlex Wong/GettyPresident Trump approved U.S. military strikes on multiple targets in Iran on Thursday but changed his mind at the last minute, according to The New York Times. Multiple senior administration officials cited by the Times said military and diplomatic officials were waiting for a strike Thursday evening when the operation was suddenly called off. One source said planes were already in the air and ships had gotten into position when the call came down that the operation was not going ahead. It was not immediately clear why the strike was called off, but Trump had appeared to walk back his accusations against Iran earlier Thursday by suggesting on Twitter that the country had not intentionally shot down a U.S. drone. It was also not immediately clear if there were plans for the strikes to go ahead at a different time. Newsweek cited a Pentagon official as saying U.S. military assets in the region were placed on a 72-hour standby. The drone incident on Thursday was just the latest in a growing list of disputes between Tehran and Washington to raise fears that one simple diplomatic misunderstanding between the two countries could trigger a full-on military confrontation. Tensions have gotten so high that the Federal Aviation Administration on Friday blocked all American-registered planes from flying over parts of the Middle East, citing “heightened military activities and increased political tensions in the region” that pose “an inadvertent risk to U.S. civil aviation operations.”It was not immediately clear if the FAA order came in response to news reports about the Trump administration’s planned airstrike, but the agency cited Iran’s shooting down of a U.S. drone early Thursday as a reason to fear aircraft could be at risk in the region. Will America Attack Iran Over One Dead Robot?While Trump and his advisers have insisted the drone Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot down Thursday was over international waters, Iranian leaders have claimed to have GPS proof that the unmanned drone flew into the country’s airspace despite radio warnings. The shooting down of the drone also came as many Democratic lawmakers had already begun to question whether the Trump administration was actively trying to build a case for military action against Iran in response to what top officials have described as escalating threats from the country since Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal last year. Just last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo backed Trump in blaming Iran for attacks on two fuel tankers in the Gulf of Oman, claiming Tehran was “lashing out” to get back at the U.S. for sanctions. The Trump administration announced last month that it would be sending additional troops to the Middle East “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime,” as National Security Adviser John Bolton put it at the time. When reports of the called-off military strikes on Iran broke late Thursday, Democratic lawmakers took to Twitter to sound the alarm over the matter. “This is governing by chaos. We need a steady hand at the wheel. I stood up against the Iraq War and I know that America cannot afford another disastrous war in the Middle East,” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a 2020 candidate, wrote. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running for president, accused Trump of “instigating” conflict with Iran. “Donald Trump promised to bring our troops home. Instead he has pulled out of a deal that was working and instigated another unnecessary conflict. There is no justification for further escalating this crisis—we need to step back from the brink of war,” she wrote.
