DENVER — First Lady Jill Biden was stuck at Denver International Airport Monday afternoon after her plane was diverted back to the airport because of an “aircraft issue.”
The first lady’s plane landed safely back at DIA and “everyone is safe,” her press secretary, Vanessa Valdivia, said. There were no injuries.
Biden was leaving Denver after meeting with lawmakers at the state Capitol earlier in the day.
