The White House asked the U.S. military to move the destroyer USS John S. McCain "out of sight" during President Donald Trump's recent visit to Japan, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.
Trump reacted to the story on Wednesday night by tweeting: "I was not informed about anything having to do with the Navy Ship USS John S. McCain during my recent visit to Japan. Nevertheless, @FLOTUS and I loved being with our great Military Men and Women - what a spectacular job they do!"
