As the Biden administration came under fire last week for allowing a Chinese spy balloon to cross the entire United States before shooting it down off the coast of South Carolina, an anonymous US Defense Department official said over the weekend that spy balloons transited over US territory during the Trump administration.
Trump, and his former administration officials, collectively called bullshit on the report - saying it 'never happened.'
"Now they are putting out that a Balloon was put up by China during the Trump Administration, in order to take the ‘heat’ off" the Biden administration, Trump wrote Sunday. "China had too much respect for ‘TRUMP’ for this to have happened, and it NEVER did."
In response to the entire Trump administration's lack of knowledge of these alleged incursions, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Monday called for a congressional investigation into why the US intelligence community failed to inform the sitting administration of foreign spy craft transiting over US airspace.
