Hypersonic Missile
We have the hydrosonic missiles you used to hear about. We now have hydrosonic missiles. — Donald Trump
Trump keeps confusing the name of new hard-to-kill missiles the US military is working on with a toothbrush
  • Amid recent attacks on his Democratic opponent for verbal gaffes, President Donald Trump has repeatedly messed up the name of a type of weapon the US is developing.
  • At three separate political events in just four days, Trump referred to "hypersonic" weapons as "hydrosonic" missiles, confusing a missile with a toothbrush.
  • Trump sometimes refers to the "hydrosonic missile" as the "super duper missile," a new weapon about which he has repeatedly provided conflicting information.
Trump appears to be talking about hypersonic missiles, but he keeps confusing the name with that of a kind of electric toothbrush made by Curaprox, the top hits if you Google "hydrosonic." These mistakes come as Trump has repeatedly mocked his Democratic opponent Joe Biden for various verbal slips.
