There was a recent report from Axios describing how Donald Trump asked about dropping nukes into hurricanes to prevent them from reaching the United States. He has since denied this report.
The story by Axios that President Trump wanted to blow up large hurricanes with nuclear weapons prior to reaching shore is ridiculous. I never said this. Just more FAKE NEWS!

That’s too bad though. I was hoping he actually did suggest it because that would have been very funny.
Jokes aside though, talking about nuking a hurricane or what not isn’t as insane as it sounds. Weather modification is a real thing and has been a real thing since at least the 1960s. So it isn’t all that crazy to ask if the military can do something about preventing hurricanes from reaching the country and causing damage.
And then there’s all the theories about chemtrails, HAARP etc.. which some believe are part of a secretive government program to manipulate the weather.
