President Trump allegedly proposed the idea of nuking hurricanes before they make landfall to stop them.
According to the website Axios, the president proposed the idea twice during the G-7 summit over the weekend in France.
"Why don't we nuke them?" he's quoted as saying in a meeting with Homeland Security officials. "We drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can't we do that?"
According to scientists, it would not work in real life.
Experts say nuking a hurricane would actually create a bigger crisis, spreading a deadly fallout cloud far and wide, thus killing more people than a storm ever would.
On Monday, the president denied he suggested nuking hurricanes, calling the idea "ridiculous."
"I never said this," he tweeted. “Just more fake news!"
