Trump sparks storm as teaser-in-chief
PRESIDENT Donald Trump delivered a foreboding message, telling reporters as he posed for photos with senior military leaders that this might be “the calm before the storm”.
The President refused yesterday to elaborate on what he meant, saying simply, “You’ll find out”.
White House reporters were summoned suddenly the previous night and told the President had decided he wanted the press to document a dinner he was holding with military leaders.
Reporters were led to the grand State Dining Room, where they walked into a scene of the President, his highestranking military aides and their spouses posing for a group photo.
“You guys know what this represents?” Mr Trump asked. “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.”
“What storm, Mr President?” one reporter shouted.
IS? North Korea? Iran? Mr Trump would not say. Nor would he clarify the next day during a gathering of manufacturers at the White House, once again teasing that an announcement would be forthcoming down the road.
