White House chief of staff General John Kelly reportedly physically confronted a Chinese official who tried to get access to America’s “nuclear football” packet, which contains the President’s instructions for firing nuclear weapons at an enemy.
This sounds like a very severe breach of diplomatic relations, and it infuriated Kelly, who is tasked with protecting the homeland and of course protecting our nuclear secrets.
Kelly said that he will only accept the Chinese official’s apology in the United States while standing beneath an American flag.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
Several senior Trump officials have been hardened by interactions with China. John Kelly got into a physical altercation in Beijing over the nuclear football, and told colleagues he’d only accept an apology standing under the US flag in Washington https://t.co/U1f3KuQ9Zh pic.twitter.com/ALbcw9JDOw
