Trump says U.S. sold planes that only exist in ‘Call of Duty’

President Trump’s praise of the mysterious F-52 fighter aircrafts recently delivered to Norway wasn’t advanced warfare, it was just “Call of Duty.”

Trump during a conference at the White House Wednesday with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, claimed the United States had begun delivering two types of fighter jets to its Northern European ally: one real, and one that only exists in a video game, the Washington Post reported.

“In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” Trump said. “We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already ahead of schedule.”

As it turns out, the only way to pilot an F-52 is to be a gamer playing “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.”

Trump during the conference also addressed recent remarks from American General Robert Neller, who told Marines stationed in the country that “there’s a war coming, a big a– fight.”

When asked when and how immediate the supposed war would be, Trump responded: “Well, maybe he knows something that I don’t know. I would say this: we have a very, very powerful military, we’re getting more powerful by the month.”

Trump’s “Call of Duty” slip-up appears to be the result of President combining the total of number of planes delivered with the name of the F-35 fighter — one of the most advanced jets in the United States’ inventory.

Lockheed Martin, the defense company behind the real planes, said in a statement to the Post, the Norwegian government has so far approved funding for 40 F-35s.
