The White House and the Capitol suffer a temporary closure after the entry of an airplane in restricted space in Washington, although minutes later the alert was lifted and the usual activity was resumed.
According to the media, the closure of the Executive and Legislative headquarters was due to the impossibility of communicating with an airplane that had violated the security space in Washington.
The announcement of the closure of the Capitol by the Legislature’s police was issued at 8:30 a.m. (ET), and was lifted about 35 minutes later.
The violation of the restricted airspace of the U.S. capital led a group of security officials to convene an emergency meeting to assess the situation, as well as to deploy several military aircraft to the area, as part of the protocol of action.
Donald Trump, was in the White House at the time of the emergency, where he plans to participate in the traditional act turkey pardoning for Thanksgiving, being held this Thursday.
Trump plans to travel later to Florida, where he will spend the holidays with his family in his private residence in Mar-a-Lago.
