President Donald Trump in April told Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte that the United States has two nuclear submarines stationed in Korean waters, according to several reports.
â€śWe have a lot of firepower over there. We have two submarines, the best in the world,â€ť Trump bragged to Duterte, according to reports by the New York Times and the Intercept. â€śWe have two nuclear submarines, not that we want to use them at all.â€ť
Defense officials were shocked by reports Trump had disclosed the location of the submarines because: â€śWe never talk about subs!â€ť
Trumpâ€™s cavalier attitude toward sensitive information is nothing new. The Washington Post reported last week that Trump shared highly classified information with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S. during a meeting in the Oval Office earlier in May.
You don't use your brain much, do you?
Previously, Trump said he sent an aircraft carrier to North Korea.. when in fact he did not. That was called a BLUFF which is a very successful strategy. Supposedly that aircraft carrier is there now. As for submarines.. you must be ignorant.. because not only has Trump mentioned them weeks ago, but at LEAST two subs ALWAYS accompany an aircraft carrier. A single aircraft carrier has enough firepower to take out almost any country on the planet. Do you think they let aircraft carriers float around without any protection? For instance, Iran has submarines. Do you think they would let an aircraft carrier go anywhere without U.S. submarines protecting it? Not a chance, and that is common knowledge to people with a functional hippocampus.
