Carl Vinson is sailing to Korea now -- it wasn't before

North Korea was about to test a missile, and the Trump administration was ratcheting up USA rhetoric about a potential standoff.

"The president said that we have an armada going to the peninsula", Spicer said, referring to a April 12 Fox Business interview where President Trump said, "We are sending an armada".

Several news reports last week claimed the Carl Vinson and several ships that accompany it were steaming toward the Sea of Japan to keep a close eye on North Korea. "The US is coordinating with the South Korean government about a combined drill which the Carl Vinson Strike Group can join", a South Korean official said.

The aircraft carrier is now expected to arrive in waters east of South Korea on April 25th, later than what defense officials had previously indicated.

North Korea held a massive military parade on Saturday to celebrate a major national holiday and conducted a midrange missile test Sunday that fizzled immediately after launch.

The Carl Vinson carrier strike group will remain deployed forward 30 days longer than planned due to a requirement that the ships stand guard in the Western Pacific, strike group commander Rear Adm. Jim Kilby said in a message to the families of those deployed.

The New York Times reported the administration officials' conflicting reports as "glitch-ridden sequence of events ..."

This explanation will undoubtedly satisfy the many people who have given Spicer and the Trump White House the benefit of the doubt over significantly more clear-cut falsehoods and messaging failures. And I will say this: "He is doing the wrong thing".

If and when the "armada" finally arrives, it's going to be staying awhile, with officials saying the planned deployment has been extended for 30 more days to prove the USA military comment to the northwestern Pacific.

"There is precedent going back to the 1990s and early 2000s where there are provocations timed to South Korean political events", he said.

Still, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer wouldn't give an inch. When then-President George W. Bush visited troops in Iraq on Thanksgiving in 2003, for example, the White House briefly told reporters false information about the president's whereabouts.

Speaking aboard the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier at the US Yokosuka naval base in Tokyo Bay, Mr Pence said the Trump administration would continue to "work diligently" with allies such as Japan, China and other global powers to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. He declined to comment on whether or not US sabotage was behind the failure of North Korea's latest missile test.
