Trump: Beirut explosion looks like "a bomb of some kind"

President Donald Trump on Tuesday cast a massive explosion that killed dozens of people and wounded thousands in Lebanon's capital, Beirut, as a possible attack and offered U.S. help.
"The United States stands ready to assist Lebanon," Trump said at a White House briefing. "We will be there to help. It looks like a terrible attack."
When asked later about his depiction of the explosion, Trump said that he had spoken with U.S. military officials who think the blast seemed to be an attack, "a bomb of some kind."
Lebanon's interior minister said initial information indicated that highly explosive material, seized years ago and which had been stored at the port, had blown up. .

  • It was a missile strike from direction of israel. Watch the flash on the smoke before the explosion. It looks like a missile strike because the flash was visible on the smoke from up high to the surface just before the blast. 2yrs ago israel presented tbis port as a point of interest for pre emptive strike. 4 days before the blast, israel declared they will be striking lebanon infrastructure then 2 days before the blast they stopped mentioning it.

    • 2 gold stars for the grammar police. When you add the word "uh" in there it kind of changes the structure of the sentence. Sure "an attack" would be the most grammatically correct but saying "a...uh...attack" is much more preferable and grammatically correct than simple just "a attack", wouldn't you say?

    • @RealityHijacked they are most often used by journalists to show that this is not what the quoted person said, but that it is what is being relayed to you. They are necessary because without them the journalists would be subject to a lawsuit for slander. To put it shortly it is used as nothing more than a scapegoat. The way they are used in the title doesn't properly convey what has been said. It is comparable to clickbait, regardless of how masterful of a bait it is, since it is a proper case of rhetorical misdirection. I put quotes on "an attack" as a form of mockery of this journalistic style of cowardice.
