Trump unhelpfully calls for ‘flying water tankers’ to put out Notre Dame fire

Thousands of people around the world are watching Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral burn. Teams of professionals are likely collaborating to extinguish the flames.
And yet from thousands of miles away, President Trump has still decided to weigh in with some unhelpful advice. As videos reveal the church’s roof and spire has collapsed, America’s notorious firefighting expert suggested some “flying water tankers” should take care of it.

So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

Surprisingly, Trump did not recommend raking the cathedral’s floors to prevent future incidents. Kathryn Krawczyk
