Trump hails sale of fictional Call of Duty fighter jets

It seems like President Trump accidentally mixed up the total number of planes (52) with the actual name of the jets (F-35)-which still makes for a amusing coincidence. Oh boy, prepare for some cringe, people.

But during a joint press conference with Solberg Trump said that the USA would be selling Norway F-52 jets.

Donald Trump has claimed that the United States has sold "F-52" fighter jets to Norway, despite these planes only existing in the Call of Duty video game series.

More likely, the president misread prepared remarks, as the next line was "We have a total of 52 and they've delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule".

Advanced Warfare was a notable game for largely nailing futuristic military technology.

The Washington Post points out that President Trump accidentally mixed up the total number of fighter jets with the actual names.

As it turns out, the only way to pilot an F-52 is to be a gamer playing "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare". Then again, in the video, he clearly was reading from a script, which raises the question of how he even made such a horrendous gaffe, assuming it was even a gaffe at all and not the fault of the script writer.

Lockheed Martin, the defense company behind the real planes, said in a statement to the Post, the Norwegian government has so far approved funding for 40 F-35s. It didn't say anything about Mr Trump's F-52s.
