    The same goes for Vice President Mike Pence, claiming the officials’ terms come to an end at 7:49 p.m. tonight.

    Your Content has requested comment from the State Department; the White House has referred requests to the State Department, who confirmed the date was ‘mistaken’ and an investigation has been launched into the culprit.

    The URL path on the State Department website leads to a “biographies” page, which includes only the biographies of members on the U.S.-Pakistan Women’s Council. There is no link to the president’s biography from that page.

    This is a developing breaking news story. It will be updated momentarily.
