In a screw-up of epic proportions, Donald Trump nearly caused World War III by misrepresenting a naval ship’s intentions. Trump’s inability to lead will get millions killed.
Last week, people around the world waited anxiously as the United States and North Korea approached the brink of nuclear war. North Korea paraded its military might for the world to see while the White House said that sending a naval carrier near North Korea would send a strong message.
Then, word got out that the Carl Vinson, a U.S. naval carrier, was headed straight to the Sea of Japan. War in North Korea seemed all but inevitable.
Now, the New York Times reported that the Carl Vinson was NEVER headed to the Sea of Japan. It was all a miscommunication from the White House.
That’s right, everyone, Trump’s inability to communicate effectively nearly had nuclear weapons flying toward South Korea, Japan, and perhaps even the United States.
It’s not just the anti-Trump crowd in the U.S. who believed Trump had sent a naval ship toward North Korea. The Times explained that the news had all of East Asia panicking.
“By the time the White House was asked about the Carl Vinson on April 11, its imminent arrival had been emblazoned on front pages across East Asia, fanning fears that Mr. Trump was considering a pre-emptive military strike on North Korea,” The Times reported.
So where was the ship headed? In the OPPOSITE direction.
The Carl Vinson was en route to Austrailia to take part in training exercises.
Had Trump effectively communicated his plans, the world may not have been so terrified. We would not have come so close to nuclear war.
Is Trump incompetent?
Trump didn’t realize that the American healthcare system was complicated. Now, he screwed up so badly that we almost saw nuclear war.
Is Trump too stupid to be President? Let everyone know what you think below.
This time, we avoided war by the skin of our teeth. Next time Trump screws up, we might not be so lucky.
Trump’s ineffectiveness is officially dangerous. It’s time to DUMP TRUMP.
If you’re worried that Trump’s idiocy will cause more danger in the future, speak up NOW. Spread this story like wildfire on Facebook.
