US President Donald Trump has advised the dropping of atomic bombs on cyclones coming into the country before they reach here so that their impulse is interrupted. A news website named Axios gave this news on Sunday.
The website said that in a meeting about the cyclone, Trump wanted to know if a nuclear bomb could be dropped on the storm itself to disrupt the process of cyclone formation off the coast of Africa.
An anonymous source said that the members who attended the meeting came out saying, “What do we do with this?” The website, however, does not say when the conversation took place.
The US President is said to have not made such remarks for the first time. In 2017, Trump had asked one of his senior officers whether the atomic bomb could be dropped on them before the cyclones arrived.
The White House declined to comment on this, but a senior official said Trump’s “motive is not evil”. According to the website, Trump’s idea is not new.
Earlier in 1950, during the tenure of President Dwight Eisenhower, a government scientist gave this advice. Scientists have previously disagreed on this idea arising again and again. Cyclones frequently occur in America.
