A U.S. Navy destroyer was dispatched by the Pentagon on Sunday to sail close to an island in the South China Sea that is claimed by China, Vietnam and Taiwan.

The guided-missile destroyer USS Stethem sailed within 12 miles of Triton Island in an effort to show China that the U.S. does not recognize their claim of sovereignty over the islands.

This is the second time President Trump has made such a move towards the Chinese to let them know the U.S. in watching closely.  In late May, another guided-missile destroyer, USS Dewey, sailed approximately six miles from one of China’s man-made islands in the South China Sea.

The USS Stethem was followed by a Chinese warship.
