Also President Barack Obama stressed there’s no threat of terrorism this ThanksgivingDay.

“If you see something suspicious, say something,” Obama said. “That’s always helpful.”

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson echoed what the President said.

“Basically, they are reinforcing existing security measures,” he said, per USA Today. “It should be obvious to the public that there is a heightened presence in places like in Union Station here, at airports and other public gathering places. In general, we want to encourage people as the holiday season begins to travel, be with your families, celebrate the holidays, go to public events — and be vigilant and be aware.”
