In a surprise attempt to visit the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea, President Trump was turned away early Wednesday after fog rolled through the area.
Trump, who is currently overseas as part of a trip meeting leaders across Asia, was not scheduled to visit the DMZ amid heightened tensions between the United States and North Korea over Pyongyang’s nuclear program.
However, the White House press pool was summoned earlier than originally scheduled and told by press secretary Sarah Sanders they were going to the border between the North and South.
“This is where we’re going,” Sanders said, as she held up a sheet of paper that had a handwritten “DMZ” on it. She told the press that was how she had been instructed to tell them where they were going.
Once there, a bad weather call by the U.S. Secret Service and the military stopped Trump — who was flying on Marine One — from visiting the border due to safety reasons.[contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/11/07/trump-surprise-trip-to-dmz-cancelled-due-to-bad-weather.html” target=”_blank”]
