'Powerful' USS Carl Vinson steams toward North Korea
Donald Trump boasted he'd ordered an "armada" as a warning to deter North Korea, however military officials say at that moment the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group was heading in the opposite direction. A spokesman for the Pacific Command linked the deployment directly to the "number one threat in the region", North Korea, and its "reckless, irresponsible and destabilizing program of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability". Pacific Command announced April 8 that it was cancelling the ships' planned visit to Australia and instead ordering them to "sail north and report on station to the Western Pacific Ocean".
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 fact that the Carl Vinson strike group was not in the vicinity of the Korean peninsula undermines the Trump administration's tough approach towards Pyongyang". "It is happening, rather", Spicer said Wednesday as he tried to clarify the issue. "We have submarines, very powerful".
"We're sending an armada", Trump said at the time.
That could still happen, but the potential flashpoint that many expected over the weekend has passed: North Korea attempted to fire a ballistic missile early Sunday, but it exploded very soon after launch.

The latest known location of the USS Carl Vinson was earlier reported by the United States military news outlet Defense News.
However, when the announcement was made, the naval strike group was still headed towards Australia, where it was scheduled to take part in joint military exercises, 5600km away.
Often called "America's Favorite Aircraft Carrier", the San Diego-based ship was named for Rep. Carl Vinson, a Democrat from Georgia.
