Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the U.S. military, promising it would make an "overwhelming and effective" response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons.

Pence’s comments come as the White House deals with a controversy over inaccurate information given by President Trump and his officials over the USS Carl Vinson’s mission in the region.
