Trump warns military leaders: Today is ‘calm before the storm’ — and tells them ‘you’ll find out’ what he means
During a typical photo-op with a group of senior military leaders, President Donald Trump had an eerie warning.
“You know what this represents? Maybe it’s the calm before the storm,” Trump said, according to an NBC News video. “You’ll find out.”
Trump then delivered a speech telling the leaders that his top priority is to keep people safe and empower them to do their work.
“Recently, we have had challenges that we really should have taken care of a long time ago, like North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, ISIS, and the revisionist powers that threaten our interests all around the world,” Trump told the group, according to a White House transcript. “Tremendous progress has been made with respect to ISIS, and I guess the media is going to be finding out about that over the next short period of time.”
Reporters repeatedly asked him to clarify “what storm,” but Trump refused to answer.
