The Pentagon Is Pissed That Trump Told The Location Of U.S. Nuclear Submarines

Once again, Donald Trump has revealed sensitive information concerning the United States’ conflict with North Korea. According to the New York Times, Trump told Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte that Washington sent two nuclear submarines toward the Korean peninsula, amid the growing concerns about North Korea’s missile launches.

Trump revealed that Washington had “a lot of firepower over there,” in a conversation between the two that occurred April 29. “We have two submarines – the best in the world. We have two nuclear submarines, not that we want to use them all,” he told Duterte, according to the New York Times, which quoted a Philippine transcript of the phone call.

The transcript, which was revealed on Tuesday, was spread under a “confidential” cover sheet by the Americas division of the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs, Reuters reports. The transcript was then confirmed to be accurate by a senior Trump administration official, who asked to remain anonymous. Similar to the situation that occurred with the Russian officials, when a U.S. official revealed that Trump discussed intel about ISIS with Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador earlier this month, which sparks concerns about Trump’s handling of sensitive information.

According to reports, Trump also commended Duterte for an “unbelievable job on the drug problem,” that led to the deaths of almost 9,000 people, most of whom were small-time users and dealers, since the Philippine President took office last year. About a third of those killed were reportedly shot by police in during missions, the New York Times reports.
