Call it a Team Trump mix-up, miscommunication or simply crossed wires. But as the U.S. President boasted he sent an "armada" as a warning to North Korea last week, the USS Carl Vinson and its strike group were actually speeding in the opposite direction. On Tuesday (April 18) the military clarified that the the fleet was actually way off in the Indian Ocean over the weekend, taking part in joint exercises with Australia. Officials say a series of errors kept the false story afloat.
