Trump Hints at 'Calm Before Storm' at Meeting With Military Leaders

Trump Hints at 'Calm Before Storm' at Meeting With Military Leaders”

Before the photo spray was called, Trump was hosting a dinner with military officials and their spouses in the Blue Room of the White House.

When reporters attending the event asked what the President's comment meant, Trump replied: "It could be, the calm, the calm before the storm".

"Tell us", one reporter said".

"You'll find out", the president said.

The president then bid everyone a good night, without clarifying his comments.

President Trump made an ominous remark after meeting with his top military commanders-and declined to explain what he was talking about. Reporters instantly starting shouting questions, primarily, "What storm?".

NBC News' Kristen Welker asked Trump one more time what the "storm" he referred to was.

Prior to Trump's foreboding tease, he told military leaders that his goal was to eliminate North Korea's nuclear weapons. "Could be the calm, the calm before the storm".

Trump said "tremendous progress" had been made with respect to the Islamic State group, adding, "I guess the media's going to be finding out about that over the next short period of time".

The Iran nuclear accord was hammered out between six nuclear powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States during President Obama's tenure in office.

On North Korea, the president said "we will do what we must do" to prevent Pyongyang from threatening the USA and its allies.

The president urged the military leaders in the room to give him "a broad range of military options, when needed, at a much faster pace".
