Donald Trump Tries to Deny That Spy Balloons Also Flew Over U.S. During His Presidency
Donald Trump tried to deny reports on Sunday that China show spy bubble about the United States during his presidency, saying the statements were an attempt to defuse confusion during the failed half-week.
Three other spy balloons have passed over the US mainland in the past, officials tell Related press, including twice under the Trump administration. That hasn’t stopped Trump and his associates, such as Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, from claiming otherwise.
“The China Balloon Situation is a disgrace, just like the horror show in Afghanistan, and everything else around the Biden Administration is so incompetent. They are only good at rigging elections and spreading misinformation,” Trump wrote in a post on his social media. Social Truth.
“And now they are bringing up that a Balloon was erected by China under the Trump Administration, to ease the ‘heat’ on the slow Biden idiots. China was too respectful of ‘TRUMP’ that this happened, and it NEVER happened.”
But US officials said Saturday that the China spy balloon – which created the most-watched news event since last year’s Super Bowl – is not the first of its kind.
However, that hasn’t stopped Trump from using his proven defense line: labeling facts he doesn’t care about as fake news.
“JUST FAKE INFORMATION!” he wrote.
