‘YOU’LL FIND OUT’

Trump Winks at Reporters While Continuing to Warn of ‘Calm Before the Storm’

President Trump on Thursday night delivered a cryptic message to the press, warning of “the calm before the storm” while taking photos with military leaders and their spouses following a meeting at the White House. The unprompted warning led to several follow-up questions, to which Trump only replied: “You’ll find out.” On Friday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wouldn’t elaborate on Trump’s comment, telling reporters: “We are never going to say in advance what [Trump] is going to do.” And while signing a declaration in the Oval Office, the president himself reiterated that “You’ll find out” what he meant; and he punctuated the comment with a wink. Various reports on Friday confirmed that Trump plans to de-certify the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, but it isn’t clear if that’s what the president meant by his warning—if he meant anything at all.
