Donald Trump has stopped short of escalating the worsening stand-off with Iran in the Persian Gulf, suggesting that the shooting down of a US drone could have been carried out by a “loose and stupid” Iranian officer without authorisation from Tehran. He was apparently ‘worried’ that up to 150 Iranians could be killed in the planned retaliation.
Claims that he was heard to say “can’t we get more of them?” in the briefing room are unverified.
In other news, Trump is still in the market to turn Notre Dame into a hotel. His most recent comment appears to be “I really like the roof as a swimming pool.”
Jeremy Hunt yesterday confirmed his bid to be the next UK Prime Minister despite not being able to ring a bell.
Sources close to Jeremy Hunt have dismissed the bell clanger as “simply a mistake” and added that he was perfectly able to hide behind a tree even if the tree wasn’t suitable for the new roof of Notre Dame.
We’ve just learned that in a private meeting on the D-Day anniversary, President Donald Trump met French President Emmanuel Macron and also British hopeful for the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, at a small Mexican restaurant in Paris.
Bizarrely, Adam Hills was also there, as he had been in London.
It is understood that the purpose of the meeting was for Trump to put a proposal to buy Notre Dame cathedral to turn it into a hotel. Apparently Trump has fallen in love with the roof being restored as a vast swimming pool.
