“You guys know what this represents? Maybe it's the calm before the storm,” Trump said after a meeting with his top military commanders.

When reporters pressed him on what the statement meant, Trump replied: “It could be, the calm, the calm before the storm.”

Reporters asked if the storm was related to Iran or ISIS.

“We have the world's great military people in this room, I will tell you that. And uh, we're gonna have a great evening, thank you all for coming.”

When reporters persisted, Trump said, “You'll find out.”
