Trump warns Chinese President about bombing Syria during dessert
US President Donald Trump has told how he bragged about bombing Syria to the President of China Xi Jinping while eating "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake".
"And I was given the message from the generals that the ships are locked and loaded. And I said 'Mr President, let me explain something to you," Trump said.
Trump told a Fox Business Network interviewer he gave the final order over dessert, then told China's premier: "We've just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq." He corrected himself to say "Syria" after the interviewer prompted him.
