Donald Trump backtracked a bit on his hostile rhetoric toward Iran: when he said they "made a big mistake” he more meant they shot down the drone “by mistake.” He then baffled the press saying at least no one was “in the drone.”
While Trump might have simply been emphasizing that no one was actually killed in the Thursday downing of an American surveillance drone near Iran, his word choice left more than a few people in between puzzled expressions and face-palms.
“Fortunately that drone was unarmed it was… there was no man in it. It was over international waters […], but we didnt have a man or woman in the drone, we had nobody in the drone.”
A number of journalists and people on Twitter were quick to mock the president for making sure to specify that no one was physically piloting the vehicle… which is unmanned by definition.
Trump, about the shot down US drone, says: There was no man or woman in the unmanned drone.
What is his IQ again?
