President Donald Trump gave a bizarre and ominous warning to reporters while taking pictures with the generals.

Here's a video of what he told reporters:

What did he say?

“You guys know what this represents," he said, smiling, "maybe it's the calm before the storm."

"What storm is that?" a reporter inquired.

"We have the world's great military people in this room, I will tell you that," he responded.

"And uh, we're gonna have a great evening, thank you all for coming," he added.

"What storm, Mr. President?" a reporter asked.

"You'll find out," he said, cryptically.

Where did he say this?

Trump was at a photo opportunity after a meeting with his military commanders at the White House.

What could he be referring to?

He could be referring to a retaliatory strike against al-Qaeda or Boko Haram militants in Niger, where a recent ambush took the lives of U.S. servicemen. Some conjectured he could have been meaning the ongoing tension with North Korea. Others believe he was hinting at a major operation in Afghanistan.
