Despite what President Donald Trump has said, U-S warships are not yet making their way toward the coast of North Korea.
Trump said last Tuesday, "We're sending in an armada." But the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson and three other warships were heading to the Indian Ocean at the time for joint exercises with the Australian Navy. The White House said Tuesday it was relying on guidance from the Pentagon, where officials acknowledge a series of misstatements. The ships are now on their way to the Korean Peninsula, where they should arrive next week.
