White House, Navy exchanged emails about keeping USS McCain out of Trump’s sight – CNNPolitics

Barbara Starr, Ryan Browne and Kate Sullivan // The Wall Street Journal first reported the discussions about moving the ship. The President ultimately spoke to troops at a Memorial Day event aboard the USS Wasp in Yokosuka, Japan.
The Journal reported Wednesday that a tarp was put in place to cover the ship’s name since it could not be moved due to repairs, but three Navy officials speaking to CNN pushed back on this claim.
“We didn’t do anything to obstruct the name of the ship. The Wall Street Journal piece refers to a photo of a tarp covering the ship, that photo was taken Friday, May 24, the tarp was removed the following day,” another US Navy official told CNN.
The official said they had not seen the emails in question, but was adamant nothing had been done to obscure the ship.The Wall Street Journal first reported the discussions about moving the ship.
