President Trump, speaking ahead of a planned dinner with his top military leaders, told reporters late Thursday night that the meeting could be the “calm before the storm,” a statement that has many wondering if some sort of major military action is set to begin in the near future.
As reporters were brought into the White House State Dining Room, Trump addressed them while gesturing to the officers who stood next to him – and then he dropped a bombshell that has triggered establishment media outlets across the country.
“You guys know what this represents,” Trump asked the assembled reporters who then asked the president to tell them.
“Maybe it’s the calm before the storm,” he replied before repeating the same line after the press pushed for more details.
This statement has predictably infuriated the mainstream press, who believe it is their divine right to be given whatever information they demand while at the same time openly working against the same White House they expect information from.
“We have the world’s greatest military people in this room, I will tell you that, Trump continued. “Thank you all for coming, thank you.”
As Trump attempted to wrap up the impromptu moment with reporters, he was asked, “What storm Mr. President?”
“You’ll find out,” Trump responded.
Obviously one has to wonder what the president meant by his comments. On one hand we already know that he loves to troll and confuse the mainstream press (which he has done here once again) but on the other we know that tensions with North Korea are at an all-time high and that he may also be planning to pull out of the Obama era Iran nuclear deal.
Openly anti-Trump CNN reporter Jim Acosta Tweeted less than an hour ago that the White House has suggested that Trump’s comments should be taken very seriously.
Stay tuned in the coming days as we will be covering whatever “storm” is on the horizon and, unlike the establishment press, we will not be doing so from a specific anti-Trump perspective that denies reality while working for the goals of the globalist world order.
