via White House says false ballistic missile threat was ‘purely a state exercise’ in Hawaii – AOL News

The White House appeared to distance itself from a colossal mix-up that resulted in a false alert being sent out in Hawaii warning of an impending ballistic missile threat.

President Donald Trump was on his golf course at the Mar-a-Lago luxury resort in Florida when the situation unfolded. The White House deputy press secretary, Lindsay Walters, released a statement afterward saying Trump had been made aware of the situation.

“The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii’s emergency management exercise,” the statement said. “This was purely a state exercise.”
