Donald Trump's plane was diverted to Nashville International Airport after the control tower received a report that the aircraft was experiencing engine trouble.

News outlets report that the Republican presidential candidate made a brief stop in Tennessee on Wednesday afternoon as he and members of his campaign boarded a smaller aircraft to complete their trip from New York to Little Rock, Arkansas.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Arlene Salac said the FAA is investigating the incident.

Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said the delay was caused by a "minor mechanical issue".
