More Bullshit from Trump

“I met with some of our great generals and they just seem to feel that it was an attack"
, Trump replied to a reporter’s question at a White House coronavirus briefing.

This was not some kind of a manufacturing-explosion-type of event. This was, seems to be, according to them — they would know better than I would — they seem to think it was an attack. A bomb of some kind.”
However:

Three US Defense Department officials told CNN that as of Tuesday night there was no indication that the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday were an "attack," contradicting an earlier claim from President Donald Trump.

While speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Trump offered sympathy and assistance to the people of Lebanon after the explosion, which left dozens dead and thousands injured and he referred to the incident as a "terrible attack." An estimated 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse in the Port of Beirut exploded Tuesday, causing destruction throughout the Lebanese capital. As of Tuesday night, at least 78 people were reported killed and 4,000 injured.
"Let me begin by sending America's deepest sympathies to the people of Lebanon, where reports indicate that many, many people were killed, hundreds more were very badly wounded in a large explosion in Beirut," Trump said. "Our prayers go out to all the victims and their families. The United States ready to assist Lebanon."

But the defense officials, who declined to be identified so they could speak freely, said they didn't know what the President was talking about.
One official said that if there were indications anyone in the region pulled something off of this scale, it would trigger automatic increases in force protection for US troops and assets in the region -- if for no other reason than worry about retribution attacks.
That official noted that none of that has happened so far.
Lying sack of (orange) shit.

He didn't meet with anyone.

apparently it was 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate that had been confiscated 6 years earlier and put into storage and then forgotten about.

Does ammonium nitrate become less stable as it ages?

Trump has denounced Biden for not believing in GOD.

HUH..? NOTHING I've seen from Trump shows he has ANY beliefs... except in money and fame. That equals power.. and hey you guys have proved him right. Aren't you offended that he would use God, and religion to get votes. ??

Wasn't that the sign Floyds Girlfriend gave to the coppers when they questioned her about him?

Comment Seth?
Until I hear otherwise from a credible source, I am leaning towards plain ole garden variety negligence and apathy as reasons why that stuff was stored next to a fireworks warehouse or factory (whatever it was) for years. It would have cost a lot of money to remove and dispose of that stuff, and apparently nobody in government really cared enough about it to do anything.

Yeah, it was negligence and the ammonium nitrate deteriorated, released oxygen and not much else was needed to set it off.

Any footage of previous explosions caused by ammonium nitrate, that equals this..??

I saw some vids, but lets face it, we get posted footage all the time that is NEVER given a time or date.

I get so sick of looking at generic scenes, while the newsreader speaks over it... Even when it shows as LIVE, it mostly isn't.
Personally..? All videos shown on NEWS or CURRENT AFFAIRS should SHOW time and date.... surely that's least we should expect..??

At least then we would not be presented with vids of all sorts of crap, that have NO RELEVANCE to today. Like the footage of people lining up at Centrelink..?? Hmm ? Dates would really HELP, becaus othrwise it is just BS propaganda.

Trump’s press conference has ended after a series of falsehoods and misleading claims. At one point he compared the Covid-19 crisis to the “the great pandemic” of 1917, saying it was a “terrible thing” that “probably ended the Second World War, all the soldiers were sick”.


The pandemic occurred in 1918, and World War II ended in 1945.
