U.S. President Donald Trump was enjoying cake when he bombed Iraq last week ... wait, he meant Syria.
In an interview with Fox Business, Trump said he informed Chinese President Xi Jinping the United States had fired missiles "heading to Iraq" (incorrectly identifying the country he was striking during the interview) while the two enjoyed dessert.
"I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner. We're now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it," Trump said of the moment he received news that the strikes were ready to launch.
He then informed Jinping that the strikes had been launched, to which the latter said - via an interpreter - that "it's OK to respond with force," when anybody uses chemical weapons against civilians.
The U.S. struck Syria with 59 missiles launched from two Navy ships in the Mediterranean last week hitting the Shayrat base, near the city of Homs in Syria.
The attack came as a response to the April 4 suspected chemical attack on civilians in the northwestern province of Idlib, which killed at least 90 people including 30 children in Khan Sheikhoun, according to Reuters.
Soon after the interview went viral many trolled Trump ... and for good reason
"God help us if he's going to launch strikes every time he has dessert."
