EXCLUSIVE: Former President Trump and a number of his top national security and defense officials refuted Biden administration officials' claims that Chinese surveillance balloons briefly transited the continental United States during the Trump administration, saying it "never happened."
A defense official on Saturday said Chinese spy balloons briefly traveled over the United States at least three times during the last administration.
But Trump and his officials said that did not occur and criticized the Biden administration for spreading disinformation.
"This never happened. It would have never happened," Trump told Fox News Digital on Sunday morning, adding that Beijing "respected us greatly" under his leadership.
"It never happened with us under the Trump administration and if it did, we would have shot it down immediately," Trump said. "Its disinformation."

Lying equals leadership for Democrats.
“They all do it”. Pretty smart defense wouldn’t you say?
I think it would have made the news seeing as people would have visually seen a giant balloon floating around in the air
“A defense official on Saturday said…”
Trump is saying “unnamed sources” lied?
“Unnamed sources” are the only thing the gaslight press has.
He has no right to disrespect “unnamed sources.” 🤡
Don’t tell me. Those three were piloted by “whyte supremacists”! Right RATS?
What’s the bigger scandal? The anonymous “defense official” lying to make Biden look good or if the Pentagon never briefed Trump or his national security team? No one will care about the anonymous source and the story will run to cover for Joe.
I knew damn well it was all all a lie.
Under Biden, thousands of people saw this Chinese spycraft. Where were are all the witnesses to this allegedly happening under Trump?
There were no witnesses like in this case, because it never happened.
No one would have seen it /s

Agreed. If it happened any time during Jan 20 2017-2021, it would’ve dominated a news cycle. There would’ve been more calls for Trump’s impeachment. There would’ve been an endless parade of talking heads and “experts” all speaking of how the event was unprecedented.
Simply a Biden lie
I have noticed that when a democrat is caught, the theme becomes “they all do it”
The only thing that floated over was all the gas from those evil lying demorats.
“Defense official says” is a replay of the CIA letter lie about Hunter’s laptop gambit. Gives China Joe a talking point. The press should demand evidence.
(Who am I kidding?)
biden disgusts more and more every day.
Common sense would tell you that if this had happened before, thousands of people on the ground would have seen and reported—just as they did with this “balloon.” And the media would have gleefully pounced on it. None of that happened. Just another Biden lie..
It COULD have been a DRY RUN: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/dry-run-balloons-called-top-delivery-platform-for-nuclear-emp-attack/ar-AA174OkJ?fbclid=IwAR3ckKyxkx2eC8zURWyqujnXrqf6qX4mSq5ukqXX7sNpl43NLfTX0fBOWG8
Yes it is a lie, but now the media is covering for Biden by reporting it as fact.
