Witnesses said the device was yellow and black and shaped like a cross. It was off the right side of the plane and was seen by several passengers on the jet, which occurred shortly before the plane touched down at 5:54 p.m.
President Trump was flying in the modified Boeing Co. 757 at the time.
The secret service is yet to release a statement regarding the incident.
