Donald Trump today boasted of the United States' sale of 'F52' aircraft to Norway. They don't exist, other than elements in the popular video game 'Call of Duty.'
In a joint press conference Wednesday with Erna Solberg, Prime Minister of Norway, Trump said the US was selling Norway a fighter aircraft that is literally a thing of fiction.
The President of the United States said Norway had already begin receiving deliveries of the first American-made “F-52s.”
“In November, we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” he blurted.
The F-52 is a fictional aircraft featured prominently in the successful Call of Duty video game series. This fan website details the craft's capabilities, which are admittedly most impressive.

“Trump was supposed to be speaking at the White House to announce Norway's purchase of 52 F-35 jets from American aerospace firm Lockheed Martin,” according to reports.
“We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already, a little ahead of schedule,” Mr Trump said on Wednesday, adding “it’s a $10 billion order.”
Norway received the first three F-35 fighter jets in November as part of efforts to increase the strength of its air force.
