Trump Mistakenly Lauds Delivery of 'Call of Duty' Jets to Norway
President Trump recently boasted about a $10 billion deal to deliver F-52 and F-35 fighter jets to Norway. But, there's one small problem. The "F-52" isn't real. It's a fictional aircraft in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
"In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets," Trump said. "We have a total of 52 and they've delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule."
Lockheed Martin, the company that produces real military aircraft, told The Washington Post Norway has authorized funding for 40 F-35s and received 10 so far. It's likely Trump just misspoke, combining the "52 planes" figure with the "F" designation of the jets.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not return a request from The Washington Post to comment on whether Trump is a Call of Duty fan.
