The Pentagon Was Shocked At What President Trump Told President Duterte

U.S. President Donald Trump called Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on April 29, 2017 and their conversation revolved around the problem with North Korea and with Kim Jong Un's nuclear ambition.

Pentagon officials however are in shock after a transcript of their conversation was released on May 23, 2017. Pentagon officials are very careful about discussing the movement of their submarines as is it their military's belief that their stealth is the key to their mission.

In their conversation, President Trump told President Duterte that the U.S. has two nuclear submarines in the area. Trump said: "We have two submarines -- the best in the world -- we have two nuclear submarines -- no that we want to use them at all."

How to Help Philippines Typhoon Victims

The NY Times has compiled a list of organizations where you can donate to help the Typhoon victims in the Philippines.

I suggest you send your donations to these confirmed and legitimate organizations only.

The other day, while grocery shopping, I was approached by a lady asking me to sign something. When I asked what it was, she told me it's to help the Typhoon victims in the Philippines.

She never asked me for a donation right away, but instead, handed me a pen and a clipboard to sign my name and on the clipboard is a small brochure with a name of an organization and some photos of some children. Only when I asked what it was for did she tell me it was for donation to the Philippines (initially, I thought it was to sign up for credit card).

I have never heard of the organization before and I do not know if they are a legitimate organization. I don't even know if they were allowed by the store to be in there to solicit donations. Maybe there are legitimate, but I am always wary of people soliciting donations on the street.

Be careful who you give your money to. It is sad to think, but even at a time of crisis, there are unscrupulous organizations looking to take advantage of the situation.
