On Wednesday, during a joint press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump bragged about delivering F-52 and F-35 fighter jets to Norway.
However, there’s one problem, F-52 jets don’t actually exist. They only exist in the first-person shooter game, called “Call of Duty. ”
According to the “Call of Duty” Wiki page, F-52 is “advanced fighter aircraft in service of the United States of America and the Sentinel Task Force in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.”
They are “equipped with afterburners for greater speed to outrun aircraft, as well as air brakes, which provide the fighter with additional maneuverability in tight corners or for avoiding enemy fire.”
During the press conference, Trump stated, “In November, we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets. We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule.”
It seems as though the “stable genius” misread the written statement. He was supposed to say that Norway purchased “52 F-35” jets. But he combined the number 52 and the F fighter designation.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also asked to comment about whether Trump was a Call of Duty fan but she never responded.

Below are some reactions on Twitter of Trump’s mistake:

Trump just said the US sold Norway F-52s (F-52 does not exist)
I wonder if F-52s were invented in Nambia?

You laugh but I promise you Lockheed is scrambling to design an F-52 knowing that the administration would buy it just to avoid admitting a Trump error

Trump sold F52 jets to Norway and is having negotiations with the Presidents of Nambia and the Virgin Islands. #F52 #Trump #dotard #UnfitForOffice #Resistance #UnfitToBePresident #FireAndFury #impeachment pic.twitter.com/N4Zx1cOMGE

So Trump said he is going to sell the country of "Normay" F52 fighter jets. Two problems here. "Normay" doesn't exist and F52 fighters are only found in the Call Of Duty video games….hmmm

Trump just blurted out the US had sold F-52’s to Norway.
F-52s. An aircraft so secret, even the military hasn’t heard of it.
I, however, was able to secure this highly classified image.
