President Trump answered reporters’ questions regarding the drop of a massive bomb in Afghanistan Thursday at a meeting Thursday.
Trump met with first responders of the I-85 bridge collapse that occurred in Atlanta on March 30. The meeting with the first responders took place in the Roosevelt Room of the White House shortly after 2 p.m., where the Trump thanked them for their heroic efforts in responding to the fire and collapse of the bridge.
The president also commented on Thursday’s bomb drop at the same event. He said he’s “very proud of our military, and it was another successful event.” He confirmed he gave total authorization to the military, and said that’s what has made the difference lately.
“If you look at what’s happened over the last eight weeks and compare that to what’s really happened over the last eight years, you’ll see there is a tremendous difference,” Trump said.
One reporter asked if this action was taken to “send a message” to North Korea? Trump responded, “I don’t know if this sends a message. It doesn’t make any difference if it does or not. North Korea’s a problem, it will be taken care of.”
Below is the video of Trump’s meeting with the first responders.
