One of President Obama’s limousines in Israel had to be replaced due to mechanical problems, according to a White House pool report Wednesday.
“We experienced mechanical trouble with one of the cars,” said Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service. “We don’t know the cause.”
“That’s why we bring different multiple vehicles,” Donovan said.
Secret Service released a follow-up statement:
“One of our protective vehicles experienced mechanical problems in Israel earlier today. This is why we bring multiple vehicles and a mechanic on all trips. Situations like this are planned for extensively by our advance teams so that the President’s itinerary is unaffected by these types of issues.”
