The Chosen One Denies Wanting To Nuke Hurricanes

USA Today reports:

President Donald Trump on Monday described as “ridiculous” a report that he discussed using nuclear weapons to alter the course of hurricanes.

Trump, who is meeting with world leaders at the G-7 in France, took to Twitter to swipe at an Axios report that he had raised the idea with senior Homeland Security and national security officials of using nuclear weapons to stop hurricanes.

The Axios report, citing unnamed sources, said Trump asked participants at a White House briefing on hurricanes, “Why don’t we nuke them?” The source recalls officials telling the president that they would look into it.
