Trump Just Revealed Where He Has Nuclear Submarines To Philippines’ Duarte
Donald Trump loves to gloat about things he has, and sometimes he just doesn’t know where to stop.
According to a call transcript between Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, Trump boasted about two U.S. nuclear submarines near North Korea.
During their conversation on April 29, Trump talked about a possible strike on North Korea using submarines.
“We have a lot of firepower over there,” Trump said in the transcript, an official document of the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs.
“We have two submarines — the best in the world — we have two nuclear submarines — not that we want to use them at all,” Trump continues. “I’ve never seen anything like they are but we don’t have to use this but he could be crazy so we will see what happens.”
Historically the Defense Department does not reveal the location of its submarines. Revealing the location of submarines could be crucial for their missions.
According to BuzzFeed News, Pentagon officials are alarmed at Trump’s disclosure. What’s even more odd is that the Philippines is not a part of the U.S. efforts to intimidate North Korea.
Trump’s stupidity has not gone unnoticed by North Korea. On Sunday North Korea launched a medium-range ballistic missile and went on to say that it was prepared to deploy the missile as part of an “answer” to Trump’s policies.
Trump is a liability to Americans, as he is fond of dangerous world leaders and has gone as far as to invite them to the White House.
“If you want to come to the Oval Office, I will love to have you in [the] Oval Office. Anytime you want to come,” Trump said, according to the transcript.
The White House readout of the call omitted Trump’s mention of the submarines, saying only that “it was a very friendly conversation, in which the two leaders discussed the concerns of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) regarding regional security, including the threat posed by North Korea.”
