The senior White House aides were flying from Washington, DC, to New York on Thursday afternoon in a two-engine helicopter when one engine failed, sources told the network.
The chopper had to return to Ronald Reagan National Airport, where the couple hopped on a commercial flight instead. It is unclear how far into the less than two-hour trip they were when the engine failed.
The aircraft was a Sikorsky owned by the Trump Organization.
A spokesperson for the couple had no comment on the incident.
