President Donald Trump revealed to author Bob Woodward that the U.S. has cutting edge nuclear weapons capabilities that are so secret that America’s enemies do not even know that they exist — a claim that Woodward said he confirmed with sources.
“I have built a nuclear — a weapons system that nobody’s ever had in this country before,” Trump told Woodward. “We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about. We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before. There’s nobody — what we have is incredible.”
The Washington Post reported:
Woodward writes that anonymous people later confirmed that the U.S. military had a secret new weapons system, but they would not provide details, and that the people were surprised Trump had disclosed it.
National security adviser Robert O’Brien was asked about the revelation during a Fox News interview on Wednesday night.
“Well, look, I’m not going to get into what he’s talking about,” O’Brien told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. “But you can rest assured that the men and women who manufacture our weapons and who have always had us on the cutting edge, whether it was back in the old days of the F-117 Nighthawk, to the B-2 bomber, to the F-22, F-35. We’re always on the cutting edge. And we have always got something out there that our adversaries don’t know about.”
“The president didn’t talk about any specific weapons system,” O’Brien continued. “But you can rest assured that we can protect the United States of America against any foe, any threat that’s out there, because of the excellent manufacturing that we do here, the research and development that we do here, and the fine men and women, the servicemen and women who man those platforms.”
