Axios reported Sunday that President Donald Trump suggested "multiple times" that Homeland and national security officials explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from striking the United States.
During one hurricane briefing at the White House, Trump responded: "I got it. Why don't we nuke them?" according to an unnamed source who was present, Axios reported. "We drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can't we do that?"
According to the source, people at the meeting wondered: "What the fuck?" But Trump was told by the person who briefed him about the hurricane that they would "look into it." One "senior administration official" didn't think the idea was so bad.
