President Donald Trump proposes nuclear bomb drop on hurricanes before the disaster hit the United States, the Axios reported.

During a briefing on the natural disaster, Trump asked if hurricane formation could be interrupted on the African coast by dropping a nuclear bomb on a typhoon, the news portal reported.

According to an unnamed source, the website said everyone attending the meeting left the briefing thinking, ‘What should we do about this?’

It is reported that this is not the first time Trump has made such a proposal.

In 2017, Trump asked a senior weather department official if he should drop a bomb on a hurricane to prevent it from landing in the US.

Trump did not specify what kind of nuclear bomb to use in the conversation.

The White House declined to comment, but Axios quoted senior administration officials as saying that Trump’s objectives were ‘durable’.

Trump’s idea is nothing new. The proposal was first made by government scientists in the 1950s, during the administration of President Dwight Eisenhower.
