The USS Carl Vinson is still nowhere near North Korea
The Navy said that a US Navy F/A-18E pilot safely ejected from his plane at sea on Friday with no apparent injuries in the Celebes Sea, near Indonesia.
The Navy said on Friday that a US Navy F/A-18E pilot safely ejected from his plane with no apparent injuries in the Celebes Sea, near Indonesia. That’s more than 2,400 miles away from Pyongyang, or roughly three days travel time for the Vinson.
“That’s a fact,” Spicer said. “It happened. It is happening, rather.”
While the US Navy told Business Insider that the Vinson would eventually head to the Korean Peninsula, the confusion about the timing of events has led some to question the Trump administration’s resolve.
South Korea’s conservative candidate for its May presidential election, Hong Joon-pyo, told The Wall Street Journal of the carrier mix-up: “What Mr. Trump said was very important for the national security of South Korea. If that was a lie, then during Trump’s term, South Korea will not trust whatever Trump says.”
