On Tuesday, Air Force 2 made an abrupt turn and flew back to Washington D.C. with Vice President Mike Pence cancelling his attendance at an event in New Hampshire.
Pence had been scheduled to speak on the opioid crisis and illegal drugs at an event in Salem, New Hampshire. It was planned that he participate in a roundtable discussion with former patients and alumni at the Granite Recovery Center headquarters and deliver remarks and then return to Washington in the evening.
Just before Pence was scheduled to arrive, the event was cancelled and his plane was diverted back to Washington for an undisclosed emergency.
Randy Gentry, a representative of Pence’s office, told the crowd in Salem that the event was being cancelled.
Gentry said, “We do have a situation where the vice president was called back to Washington.”
Press Secretary for the vice president, Alyssa Farah, tweeted this:
Trump tweeted this out:
Leaving South Korea after a wonderful meeting with Chairman Kim Jong Un. Stood on the soil of North Korea, an important statement for all, and a great honor!
On Monday President Trump made life difficult for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and company. Trump signed an executive order that hit Iran with harsh sanctions.
Trump spoke from the Oval Office with Vice President Mike Pence and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin standing in back of him on either side and said, “Today’s action follows a series of aggressive behaviors by the Iranian regime in recent weeks including shooting down a U.S. drone.”
The president called out Khamenei by saying that he was “responsible for the hostile conduct of the regime.”
Trump went on to say that the sanctions “will deny the supreme leader and the supreme leader’s office and those closely affiliated with him and the office access to key financial resources and support.”
It has been confirmed by FOX News that the U.S. military carried out a cyberattack against Iran last Thursday. This came after Iran shot down a U.S. drone which was flying near the Strait of Hormuz.
It has been alleged that U.S. Cyber Command launched the cyberattack targeting the Iranian intelligence and radar installations that were used to down the U.S. Navy drone last week.
Trump put out a statement that was supplied with the text of the executive order that Trump signed on Monday saying, “We call on the regime to abandon its nuclear ambitions, change its destructive behavior, respect the rights of its people, and return in good faith to the negotiating table.”
Confrontation between Iran and the U.S. heated up last Thursday when Iran shot down an American drone and said that it had flown over its air space. The U.S. is adamant that the drone was over international airspace.
Tensions are riding high and hot but Trump is keeping his cool.

A Leader Not A Politician
FROM AN EARLY AGE FALCON SANE WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT.
When asked why, he answered, “So I can help people.”
During a period of political and social unrest in the U.S., tender-hearted Falcon travels through youth into adulthood crossing the paths of love, corruption, and power, in search of the American dream—freedom. Despite incredible odds, he never gives up, never gives in, and never loses sight of who he is.
His quests carry him to the wilderness of the Idaho mountains, into the belly of a foul profiteering county jail, clamped in the jaws of an unethical corporation, and ultimately to a long-desired romance. As a successful businessman, and with an incredible woman at his side, Falcon turns his passion toward fixing the corruption of his beloved America and runs for president.
His message is clear: United, we can make a difference.
