Hillary Clinton discredited the president on Monday when she tweeted that the US should not use nuclear bombs to attempt to advertise hurricanes after a report said he wanted to explore that option.
& # 39; We must not destroy hurricanes, & # 39; Clinton joked on Twitter.
On Sunday, Axios published a report claiming that Donald Trump spoke to several Homeland Security and national security officials about hurricanes before they reached the US
He claimed that the story was just another & # 39; fake news & # 39; article.
& # 39; The story of Axios that President Trump wanted to blow up large hurricanes with nuclear weapons before he reached the coast is ridiculous. I never said this. Simply more FAKE NEWS! & # 39; he posted on Twitter on Monday morning.
He made the tweet from Biarritz, France, where he and several other world leaders come together for the 45th Group of Seven summit.
Former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed Monday that the US should not bomb hurricanes
Clinton & # 39; s tweet was a hit with the president after a report appeared on the weekend that he bombed these storms so they would disappear before they landed
Trump insisted that the article, published by Axios, & # 39; fake news & # 39; was and claims that he never said what he would have quoted in the story.
Clinton continues to weigh on Trump government politics and decisions and policies after losing to him in the 2016 elections.
Just before posting her tweet addressed to the President, the former Secretary of State also posted a video from the Clinton Foundation about helping to rebuild a house in St. John after Hurricane Irma hit the US Virgin Islands in 2017.
The first year of Trump's presidency was a hyperactive hurricane season – the most expensive according to American records.
Most notably, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria all landed in the US and caused millions of damage. The storms hit Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, Cuba and the US Virgin Islands.
Axios' Sunday report claims that Trump floated with nuclear weapons as a way of trying to advertise hurricanes before they landed.
& # 39; I understand. I understood. Why don't we destroy them? & # 39; Trump said during a hurricane briefing at the White House, according to a source who attended the meeting.
& # 39; They begin to form off the coast of Africa as they move across the Atlantic, let's drop a bomb in the eye of the hurricane and it will disturb it. Why can't we do that? & # 39; the source paraphrased the President's remarks.
The source said the proposal brought the meeting to a halt.
& # 39; You could hear a mosquito fart in that meeting, & # 39; said the source. & # 39; People were surprised. After the meeting we thought: & # 39; What the f —? What do we do with this? & # 39; & # 39;
The report said that during a hurricane meeting in 2017 – the most expensive hurricane season in the US. record – he said: & # 39; I get it. I understood. Why don't we destroy them? & # 39;
According to the report, the president has raised the idea more than once.
A memorandum from the National Security Council of 2017 outlined that he had brought up bombing of the hurricane during an interview with a senior official.
The source who was informed about the memo said it was not specifically & # 39; nuclear & # 39; said, only that Trump was talking about the possible bombing of the storms.
Trump is not the first to ever come up with the idea of bombing storms to dispel them.
The idea that a bomb burst in the middle of a hurricane can counteract convection currents dates back to the 1950s when it was proposed by a government scientist when Dwight Eisenhower was president.
This idea has changed in popularity over the years, but modern scientists insist that it should not work.
