Donald Trump has already forgotten which country he recently attacked with 59 missiles valued at more than $80 million.
Trump sat down with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo to discuss how he told Chinese President Xi Jinping about the attack as it was occurring.
The POTUS launched 59 Tomahawk Cruise missiles at an airbase in Syria and he told Xi about it over dinner at his Florida country club Mar-a-Lago.
When Bartiromo asked Trump how the conversation went, the conversation went sideways.
“I was sitting at the table we had finished dinner we’re now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen,” Trump said.
“And President Xi was enjoying it. And I was given the message from the generals that the ships are locked and loaded, what do you do? And we made a determination to do. So the missiles were on the way,” the President added.
“So I said, Mr. President, let me explain something to you—this is during —we’ve just fired 59 missiles, all of which hit by the way. Unbelievable, from hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing, so incredible, it’s brilliant, it’s genius, our technology, our equipment is better than anybody by a factor of five…” he bragged.
He then went on a tangent where he praised the military for hitting all of its targets, despite completing missing the airbases runway.
“So what happens is, I said, we just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq—”
“Heading towards Syria?” Bartiromo corrects him.
“Yes, heading toward Syria.”
Apparently, it doesn’t matter who he killed, as long as he was the best at it.
