Trump Tips Brand-New ‘Super-Duper Missile’ That Puts China’s Best Missiles to Shame

If you’re developing something that’ll put China’s best missiles to shame, what do you dub it? The “super-duper missile,” of course.

The media’s going to seize upon that moniker bestowed upon a new missile tipped by President Donald Trump at the White House on Friday.

It’s made it into pretty much every headline I’ve seen (including ours, to be fair). And, if the missile turns out to live up to the specs laid out at the event, it’s going to be very much worthy of the branding.

The occasion was the unveiling of the official Space Force flag at the White House, but Trump had one more thing to talk about: a new hypersonic missile that would match or beat similar efforts from China and Russia.

“We’re building right now incredible military equipment at a level that nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump said at the news conference.

“We have no choice. We have to do it with the adversaries we have out there. We have, I call it the super-duper missile,” he continued. “I heard the other night, 17 times faster than what they have right now.”

“You’ve heard Russia has five times, and China is working on five or six times, we have one 17 times, and it’s just gotten the go-ahead.”

It’s the “fastest in the world by a factor of almost three,” Trump added.

The media had its usual field day over this one — particularly after the Pentagon refused comment and deferred to the White House, only for White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to defer back to the Pentagon.
