The reason for Vice President Mike Pence canceling a visit to New Hampshire remains a mystery, but President Trump said Friday that it had to do with something in New Hampshire -- and not the White House.

Reporters asked Trump about it, stoking further questions about what transpired Tuesday. The exchange:

Trump: "You'll know in about two weeks.

Reporter: What is it?

Trump: "There was a very interesting problem that they had in New Hampshire ..."

Reporter: What kind of problem?"

Trump: "I can't tell you about it. It had nothing to do with White House. There was a problem up there and I won't go into what the problem was, but you'll see in a week or two."
