Donald Trump announces sale of non-existent fighter jet to Norway

Another day, another gaff from the president of the United States of America.

Taking a break from flirting with nuclear war on Twitter and slagging off the author of his latest biography, Donald Trump held a joint press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg yesterday.

During the presser, Trump announced that the United States had sold F-52 fighter jets to its Scandinavian ally.

“In November, we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” Trump said.


There’s only one small problem with this statement: F-52 fighter jets don’t exist outside of Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Yes, really. Apparently Trump was supposed to announce the sale of 52 F-35 fighter jets to Norway, but here we are.

Naturally, Trump’s announcement prompted a flurry of reactions on social media.


As ridiculous as this all sounds, it provided a moment of much needed levity to Trump’s activities yesterday, which also included him complaining that the USA shouldn’t be letting in immigrants from “shithole countries” such as Haiti and nations in Africa.

Thanks Don. We love you too!
