During a Thursday night photo op with U.S. military leaders and reporters, as attendees were quietly and politely lining up for the picture, President Trump made some cryptic comments that left far more questions than answers.
“You guys know what this represents?” Trump asked reporters. When someone asked him to answer, the president said, “maybe this is the calm before the storm.”

When reporters tried to ask Trump to be more specific, he commented that America has the “world’s great military people” before saying, “You’ll find out.”

maybe I'm old fashioned but I don't like when presidents suggest there'll be military news & then cut away to an indefinite commercial break
