Wall Street Journal has emails proving Navy was ordered to hide McCain ship — after White House disputes report

Published

on

President Donald Trump and the Navy Chief of Information are both denying a Wall Street Journal report that the USS John McCain was “ordered” to be concealed during the president’s trip to Japan.

“The name of USS John S. McCain was not obscured during the POTUS visit to Yokosuka on Memorial Day. The Navy is proud of that ship, its crew, its namesake and its heritage,” the Navy said in a statement.

“The Navy said the tarp was removed Saturday before @realDonaldTrump visit Monday. The paint barge was also moved before Monday’s presidential visit,” Tweeted Reuters reporter David Shepardson.

But according to Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey, the Wall Street Journal has copies of the emails and they’re happy to publish them.

“WSJ has emails, their publishing standards are quite high, other admin officials confirm it and ⁦⁦@rebeccaballhaus⁩ is a terrific reporter. So just read the story,” tweeted Dawsey.

Trump tweeted that he wasn’t informed about the ship, which is entirely possible. His staff has a tendency to insulate and protect him.
