Trump Calls BS on Hurricane Nuke Stories

President Trump has called “BS” on the mainstream news outlets that have been pushing a story that he proposed taking out hurricanes that were approaching the US with nuclear weapons.

President Trump has been trying to shoot down an erroneous report that said he “suggested multiple times” to top officials that they should look into whether a nuclear bomb could stop a massive hurricane in its tracks.

Axios, citing unnamed sources, reported Sunday that Trump made the comments to Homeland Security and other officials. Since then it has been picked up by other news outlets, and has been trekking across the internet like a Cat 5 storm.

The original Axios “source” had paraphrased the President talking about how hurricanes form off the coast of Africa, and said he supposedly asked, “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 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported that the nuclear option is a bad idea. “Apart from the fact that this might not even alter the storm, this approach neglects the problem that the released radioactive fallout would fairly quickly move with the tradewinds to affect land areas and cause devastating environmental problems,” the website read.

The “unnamed source” said those present in the meeting were astonished, and further claimed that Trump inquired about the use of a nuclear bomb on “more than one occasion

Trump took to Twitter on Monday to call the report “ridiculous.”

Just More Fake News to Make Trump Look Bad

In response to the reports, Trump tweeted, “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!”

A senior official appeared to defend Trump in the Axios report and said, “His goal — to keep a catastrophic hurricane from hitting the mainland — is not bad. His objective is not bad.”

    As president of the United States even if the report was true, his job is to look for the well being of the American people, I commend President Trump for looking into ways to combat the dangers of a hurricane destruction, even if it looks odd, asking questions does not put anybody in danger, NOT ASKING is THE DANGER!!!

    Just stupid! Why would he want to do something like that and expose his own family, much less the American people, to the fallout? When will the idiots stop attacking this man that is only trying to make things better for his fellow Americans? They need to get behind him and realize that he is a Patriot and is trying to keep his promises to all of us against all odds. Democrats/Liberals have no clue about what the People want and remain narcissistic in their behavior instead. Like many others, I am totally sick of this attitude and “rumor news”. Journalism use to be about actually investigating a story and sticking with the truth. Today there are very few journalists out there and the rest are just fiction writers and gossips.

      A number of years back, I enjoyed science fiction novels a great deal and came across a book titled, “The Weathermakers”. I don’t recall the author but it was well written and dealt with using low radioactivity yield nuclear bombs, perhaps neutron bombs to disrupt the eye of the hurricane. Apparently the agency dealing with this had to control many variables.

      Unfortunately based on some of the things Trump has said,
      this was believable that he could have said it. There is fake news on both sides-always has been. More like how a spin is spun! Listen to what he says and judge for yourselves! Stop letting known news pundits tell you what to think. Time to think for ourselves is now!

    Where did they get a nuclear bomb out of just the word bomb? The possibility has been asked before way before President Trump.

    I wonder if he meant “bomb” instead of “nuke”, a term which has become synonymous with large bomb.

    Liberal demoncrats not only do not know what normal people want, they don’t care what normal people want. They are just trying to grab all the power they can trying to establish their socialist utopia. Then they will make all the “normal people” slaves to demoncrats and their worshiping dependents!

    The news media has been saying everything fake about the President since he was running for office. They will never leave him alone. I have never seen hatred in my life time and I’m in my 70s. Will never listen to another news station or read a democratic news paper until the hate stops. In praying for our country.

    I swear. If the faggot pinko Commies do something to hurt or impeach this president, the next one we elect, will make Hitler and Mussolini and Genghis Khan look like girl scouts. Simple, we reinstate the draft, put them all in uniform, start a war with North Korea, and place them all in the front lines. After that experience, they’ll turn into born again Americans.
