Trump Slams China For Seizing Drone, Calls It ‘Unpresidented Act’

In a tweet posted early Saturday morning, President-elect Donald Trump ripped China for its reported seizure of a U.S. Navy unmanned underwater drone in the South China Sea.

Trump called it an “unprecedented act”—spelled “unpresidented” in the initial post saved on Politwoops, which the President-elect later deleted and reposted with the correct spelling.

Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said on Friday that the drone was collecting unclassified scientific data when it was taken by a Chinese ship. He said the U.S. has asked for it to be returned and has issued a formal complaint.
