When asked what storm, Trump says 'You'll find out'

Um, what storm is that?

"You'll find out," President Donald Trump mysteriously said Thursday night during a photo op with top military officials and their spouses at the White House. Earlier in the evening, Trump met with senior military leaders, including Defense Secretary James Mattis.

"We have the world's great military people in this room," Trump said during the photo op.

It was unclear what Trump was referring to, but later in a speech to the military families he referenced a number of global hot spots.

"Recently, we have had challenges that we really should have taken care of a long time ago, like North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, ISIS, and the revisionist powers that threaten our interests all around the world," Trump said, according to a White House transcript. "Tremendous progress has been made with respect to ISIS, and I guess the media is going to be finding out about that over the next short period of time."
