Former President Donald J. Trump admitted early this morning that he had classified US nuclear secrets in his safe, but he didn’t steal them — he was holding the nuclear codes for a friend.
The Washington Post reported the FBI searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home because it suspected he took “classified documents related to nuclear weapons” as well as other papers. It seems the 45th President is now claiming that while he had the papers, he didn’t know what they were and he certainly didn’t steal them.
Trump’s most recent version of the story is that he received a phone call from Russian President Vladimir Putin. After some small talk about the war in Ukraine and how Hunter Biden’s laptop has all of Hillary’s Bangazis, Putin asked Trump to “hold a few things” for him since he was having trouble getting them out of the country.
I’m a great friend. I’m the best friend anyone could friend. When a friend asks you to put some manilla envelopes with US TOP SECRET printed on them in your safe, you just say yes. That’s what incredible friends do.Donald Trump posting on his social media platform Truth Social
