In the Oval Office on Friday, President Donald Trump was asked again about his previous comment that we were in “the calm before the storm,” winking in response to a reporter who wondered what he meant by it.

“You’ll find out,” Trump said after his wink. “We’ll see.”

During a photo op on Thursday night at the White House with senior military officials, Trump said the moment “maybe” represented “the calm before the storm.”

“What’s the storm?” a reporter asked. “On Iran? On ISIS? On what?”

Trump deferred to praising the military, but when he asked again about the “storm” he spoke of, Trump said, “You’ll find out.”

The comments came amid tensions involving Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and strife with both Iran – over the nuclear deal – and North Korea.

During Friday’s press briefing, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said Trump was seeking to keep an element of surprise on whatever subject he was talking about.

When asked further about how he could be keeping an element of surprise by talking about a coming “storm” in the first place, Sanders said he was doing so because he did not share any details.

“He certainly doesn’t want to lay out his game plan” for US adversaries, she said.
