Trump takes chocolate while US airstrikes kill dozens in Syria
US President Donald Trump brought upon himself the collective wrath of the Internet after statements he made during an interview aired on Wednesday. In his interview he spoke about eating 'the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake' with Chinese President Xi Jinping when he ordered the airstrike on Syria.
During the interview, he also confused the name of the country he launched the missiles at. The comments instantly drew a flood of reactions on Twitter.
"We had finished dinner. We're now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it," Trump said in the interview. He goes to explain how that is when he received a message from the generals that "the ships are locked and loaded."
After praising their military technology and equipment, he spoke about telling the Chinese President about the strike. "I say, 'We've just launched 59 missiles, heading to Iraq.'"
"Headed to Syria," the interviewer corrected him. "Yes, heading towards Syria," said Trump.
People quickly took to Twitter to post their reactions on the interview, according to a global media report.
