Donald Trump described to Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo today how he informed Chinese President Xi Jinping about the recent bombing of a Syrian airfield over a “beautiful piece of chocolate cake” at his Mar-a-Lago resort last week.
During his story, Trump briefly forgot which country he had bombed.
Trump said, “I said, ‘We’ve just launched 59 missiles, heading to Iraq.’”
Maria Bartiromo interjected, “Heading to Syria.”
Trump responded, “Yes. Heading toward Syria.”
There’s the fierce command of detail we have come to expect from Donald Trump.
