US aircraft carrier to reach waters near NKorea next week
"We are sending an armada".
The U.S. Navy Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson is steaming for waters off the Korean Peninsula, while joint South Korean-U.S. military exercises are set to continue in South Korea until the end of April.
The White House said it based its statements on guidance from the Defense Department.
Trump fanned the flames with a Twitter post the same day.
Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) on Tuesday taunted President Trump over reports a US aircraft carrier was not at a location previously announced by the White House. 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.
Pence made an unannounced visit to the Demilitarized Zone at the start of his 10-day trip to Asia in a US show of force that allowed the vice president to gaze at North Korean soldiers from afar and stare directly across a border marked by razor wire.

In the midst of this madness, unverified reports began circulating that China had moved 150,000 troops to the Korean Peninsula in anticipation of a conflict.
President Trump says that China wants to help rein in the North Korean nuclear program.
His attempts to portray himself as a muscular war president are unsafe, and as we're finding out now - they're also patentedly untrue.
Later that day, Spicer was asked by a reporter, who assumed the Carl Vinson was on its way north, why the United States had made a decision to dispatch the carrier group to the Sea of Japan. "China does not want to have the new carrier battle group in their backyard".
"The forward deployment is deterrence, presence".
The Sunda Strait is a waterway between Malaysia and Indonesia near the Indian Ocean. Which the Secretary of Defense said were canceled. Where did he think the ships were when he said this? "We had to explain why she wasn't in that exercise", he said. "The U.S. Pacific Command ordered the Carl Vinson Strike Group north as a prudent measure to maintain readiness and presence in the Western Pacific", said Dave Benham, a spokesman for the Pacific Command, according to the Agence France-Presse news agency.
