In a Fox Business interview where a giggling Maria Bartiromo could barely contain her glee, Donald Trump addressed his decision to strike a Syrian airbase.
Of course, that decision was made while he was hosting Chinese president Xi Jinping. This morning, after Bartiromo eagerly asked how the American president told the Chinese president what had happened, he said, “I will tell you. Only because you’ve treated me so good for so long.”
Bartiromo giggled and Trump went on:
I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner; we are now having dessert. We had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it. I was given the message from the generals that, ‘The ships are locked and loaded. What do you do?’ And we made the determination to do and the missiles are on the way. And I said, ‘Mr. President, let me explain something to you.’ This is during dessert. ‘We’ve just fired 59 missiles.'”
Watch above to see the two of them really bond over deadly weaponry and to hear Trump get in a dig at Barack Obama yet again.
