Trump lauds sale of F-52 planes to Norway – the fictional planes that only exist in Call of Duty
This is the best thing you'll read this week.
President Trump caused quite a stir this week with his announcement that a certain type of fighter jet that is only available on Call of Duty was delivered to Norway by the US.
The “F-52” is a fictional jet only made available to those behind the controls of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Trump celebrated the delivery of the fictional fighter jets early on Wednesday afternoon alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House.
Today, it was my great honor to welcome Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway to the @WhiteHouse - a great friend and ally of the United States! Joint press conference: https://t.co/qWR1BhfQZI pic.twitter.com/PJvwznjRCO

“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.”
The F-35 to which they're referring are the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, a family of single-seat, single-engine, all
They are designed to perform both ground attacks and air superiority missions.
The F-52, also known as the F-52-B, is an advanced fighter aircraft in service of the United States of America and the Sentinel Task Force in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
It is equipped with afterburners for greater speed to outrun aircraft, as well as air brakes, which provide the fighter with additional manoeuverability in tight corners or for avoiding enemy fire.
The Washington Post believes it likely that Trump combined both the number of planes, 52, with the name of the F-35 fighter to make the fumble.
Pair that with the fictional country of ''Nambia'' and the infamous ''covfefe'' and you'd swear Trump was in the early stages of creating his own language.
