ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Monday afternoon, the official website for the U.S. State Department said that the terms of President Donald Trump and Michael Pence would end on Monday. 

That led to a lot of confusion, so News10NBC looked into it. 

The State Department is now investigating what it says appears to be a prank.

While the department hasn't ruled out the prospect that the entry was the work of a disgruntled employee, they have yet to reach any conclusions.

The page has since been removed.
