Donald Trump is denying a report that he’s looking into the possibility of using nukes to break up hurricanes that threaten the U.S. coast.
According to the Axios report, sources say Trump had a briefing on hurricanes and asked his advisers, “Why don’t we nuke them?” He continued, “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” The advisers then reportedly told him they’d look into it.
Overnight, Trump denied ever asking about the nuking hurricanes teeting, “The story by Axios that President Trump wanted to blow up large hurricanes with nuclear weapons prior to reaching shore is ridiculous. I never said this. Just more FAKE NEWS!
- It certainly sounds like something Trump would have asked about.
- Maybe he did ask about it. What’s wrong with that?
- Africa may not be happy with Trump dropping nukes into hurricanes off its coast.
- Maybe this is a job for the space force to handle.
