Things are heating up at the White House.
Late Thursday night the Trump Administration met with key military advisors and generals. Trump focused on talking about North Korea as well as Iran in the meeting. After the meeting, the group gathered in the White House for a photograph.
As the picture was being taken, Trump states “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.” This could be alluding to possible military action against America’s enemies.
Here’s more from Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – After discussing Iran and North Korea with U.S. military leaders on Thursday, President Donald Trump posed for a photo with them before dinner and declared the moment “the calm before the storm.”
“You guys know what this represents?” Trump said after journalists gathered in the White House state dining room to photograph him and first lady Melania Trump with the uniformed military leaders and their spouses.
“Maybe it’s the calm before the storm,” he said.
“You’ll find out,” Trump told questioning reporters.
Classical music played in the background and tables were set in the nearby Blue Room for a fancy meal.
The White House did not immediately reply to a request to clarify Trump’s remark.
Earlier in the evening, while seated with the top defense officials in the cabinet room, Trump talked about the threat from North Korea and preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
“In North Korea, our goal is denuclearization,” he said. “We cannot allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or our allies with unimaginable loss of life. We will do what we must do to prevent that from happening. And it will be done, if necessary, believe me.”
These cryptic remarks come after Trump’s address to the United Nations in regards to North Korea. Earlier this week, trump and advisors discussed the Iran deal that was made by President Obama. Trump has not been bashful about his negative opinion of the deal.
