Sean Spicer got grilled by White House reporters on Wednesday about the Trump administration offering misleading claims about whether it was sending an aircraft carrier to the Sea of Japan as signal to North Korea.
Although Spicer said last week that the carrier would serve as “a huge deterrence” to North Korea, the New York Times reported on Tuesday that the U.S.S. Carl Vinson was actually sailing toward the Indian Ocean at the time the U.S. announced that it was heading to the Sea of Japan.
In fact, as of Monday, the carrier was sailing through the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, which is thousands of miles south of the Sea of Japan.
