Washington - US president Donald Trump has dismissed claims that he proposed using nuclear weapons to ‘disrupt’ hurricanes approaching the US.
The American President reportedly suggested dropping bombs into the eyes of storms forming off the coast of Africa.
"Why don’t we nuke them?" he is said to have asked during White House briefings with national security officials.
An anonymous source told the website Axios that officials assured Mr Trump they would "look into it".
But the President on Monday dismissed the story.
