Trump Says China Should Keep Drone They Agreed to Give Back

Source: ABC News

"President-elect Donald Trump said tonight that China should keep the U.S. Navy underwater drone that had been seized in international waters in the South China Sea. The Pentagon said Saturday that China agreed to return the drone.

"We should tell China that we don't want the drone they stole back.- let them keep it!" Trump tweeted this evening.

The incident had sparked a diplomatic protest from the United States demanding the return of the drone, which is used for oceanographic research.

China Agrees to Give Back US Underwater Drone Seized in South China Sea
Before it was revealed that China would return the drone to the United States, Trump took to Twitter to call the drone seizure an "unprecedented act."

7. He's just acting Republican.

Whatever your opponent says you say the opposite.
It's standard procedure for Republicans nowadays and takes virtually no thinking which is something Republicans are good at.

12. So, our media is content to report on tweets from the POTUS elect? They should be demanding a....

press conference, and refusing to report anything about him until he relents.

13. The Chinese will Share the drone specs with Russia.

So Putin told Trump to tell the Chinese they can keep the drone.

14. Simple solution

Put a naked photo of Trump inside every drone we have.


In other news, a record number of American spy drones are being returned to the US from countries all over the world.

Donald, look: You're supposed to do like the last Republican president did, and wait until AFTER you're inaugurated before you hand China a bunch of American secrets on a silver platter.

33. Get used to it

The sad truth is that tomorrow Trump becomes President.

We will all have to get used to this level of stupidity.

He's just going to shoot his mouth off on Twitter and in other mediums. He seems to not understand that he is going to be the President of the U.S. and saying things like this are confusing, destabilizing, and detrimental to the country he is supposedly going to lead.

He's the most dangerous kind of idiot. One that doesn't know that he's not that bright.

He will seriously damage the standing of the U.S. He will be outmaneuvered and outplayed and he'll keep telling us that he's real smart.

That wrecking crew he calls a cabinet will do everything they can to return us to the 1920's.

God help us all.
