The San Diego-based carrier Theodore Roosevelt is joining two other flattops for a major exercise in the western Pacific that begins Saturday.
This massive show of military force is taking place during the US President's 12-day Asia tour amid heightened tensions with North Korea.
"It is a rare opportunity to train with two aircraft carriers together, and even rarer to be able to train with three", said U.S. Pacific Fleet Commander, Adm. Scott Swift, said in a Wednesday statement.
"This drill is aimed at enhancing the ability to fulfill extended deterrence, based on the ROK - U.S. alliance, to deter North Korea's nuclear provocations", according to the JCS.
Units assigned to the strike force will conduct coordinated operations in worldwide waters to demonstrate the U.S. Navy's unique capability to operate multiple carrier strike groups as a coordinated strike force effort.
Just days ahead of Trump's visit to Japan, the first stop on his Asia tour, the US sent two B-1B heavy bombers from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam for bilateral missions with South Korean Air Force fighter jets and Air Self-Defense Force warplanes.

After phone calls and meetings, he drove her to his home some days later and kissed her, the Post quotes Corfman as saying. In addition, Zeigler said that even if the allegation was true, it did not involve sexual intercourse.
The exercises come after the US and South Korea in their recent annual meeting on defensive policy agreed to expand the rotational deployment of strategic American military assets such as aircraft carriers, submarines and bombers to the peninsula. Ronald Reagan took part in VS 2006 and Nimitz took part in VS 2007. The US 7th Fleet did not mention where in the western Pacific the three aircraft carriers would be conducting their exercises.
During the drill, the first of its kind in a decade, the warships will carry out air strike and defense simulations, maritime surveillance, sea supply, coordinated fenced maneuvers and other training, added the Navy. In recent months, U.S. Navy carriers have conducted dual-carrier strike group exercises in the Western Pacific, including in the contested South China Sea, East China Sea and Philippine Sea. The Fleet is just as committed to maintaining those security commitments for the next 70 years.
During his recent visit to Seoul, Trump said, " North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned.
He said of the North Korean threats to strike the US and its allies, "That would be a fatal miscalculation".
Trump on Tuesday reiterated his goal to achieve what he called "peace through strength", warning the USA could use "the full range of our unmatched military capabilities" against Pyongyang.
