“I’m fine, I’m fine. We all prayed a little, but we’re fine, ”Harris told reporters after getting off the plane. She also gave a thumbs up.

Senior aide Simone Sanders said there were “no major safety issues during the flight.”

Harris travels to Guatemala and Mexico for her first overseas trip as vice president. In March, President Joe Biden assigned her to lead the administration’s diplomatic efforts with the Northern Triangle and Mexico to help stem the flow of migration along the southern border. Harris intends to spend two days meeting with the presidents of the two countries and meeting with organizers on the ground.
