WASHINGTON —

President Barack Obama is back at the White House after his return there was delayed by the discovery of a suspicious package.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says Obama was held aboard Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base until the package at the White House was determined to be of no threat to the president.

Air Force One landed just after 10 p.m. EDT but Obama remained on board for more than a half-hour. Meanwhile, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who flew back from New York City with the president after they attended a political event, got off and departed the base.

Obama arrived back at the White House just after 11 p.m.
