The United States has weapons systems that no one knows about. American President Donald Trump told this to reporters on Thursday before leaving for Michigan.
The head of state was asked to comment on the allegations from the upcoming book by American journalist Bob Woodward, ‘Rage’. The book is based, among other things, on 18 of Woodward’s exclusive interviews with Trump. According to the journalist, the President of the United States in conversations with him, among other things, stated that the United States has developed a new nuclear weapons system, which neither Russia nor China has analogues of.
“We have excellent weapons. No, I’m not talking about classified [information], I’m talking about what we have created. We create great weapons. Our Armed Forces are stronger than ever. We have spent $ 2.5 trillion on our aircraft over the past 3.5 years. Now we have new missiles <…>. I hope we never have to use it, but our nuclear [weapons] are now at their best in decades,” Trump responded.
“We have some systems that no one knows about. To be honest, it seems to me that it would be better to keep this way. We have some incredible systems,” continued the head of the White House.
The President of the United States also made a statement that the United States possesses the best weapons in the world, the likes of which neither Russia nor China has.
“We have invested 2.5 trillion in the US military. You know, with these false media, I said: “We have systems and missiles <…>. We have systems that you have never even seen before, [Chinese President] Xi [Jinping] has nothing like it, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has nothing like it. No one has anything like what we have.” And they said, “Is he giving out [secret] military information?” No, I’m saying we have the greatest weapon in the world, ”said the US President, speaking to supporters in Michigan.
“They say, ‘He may be revealing classified information.’ You don’t have to worry about it. These people are sick,” Trump continued.
Excerpts from Woodward’s book on the development of nuclear weapons were published on Wednesday by The Washington Post. As the publication clarifies, Woodward’s sources “later confirmed that the US Armed Forces have a new secret weapons system.” Woodward declined to give details on this. “[Woodward’s] sources were surprised that Trump revealed” the existence of the system, the newspaper said.
