However, according to Axios, Trump's suggestion that bombs should be used to halt hurricanes was recorded in a memo by National Security Council officials.
President Trump tweeted Tuesday: "The Fake News is still trying to perpetuate the phony story that I wanted to use Nuclear weapons to blow up hurricanes before they reach shore.
"I stand by every word in the story," Jonathan Swan, the Axios reporter who wrote the story, tweeted Monday.
US President Donald Trump has again denied a report claiming that he suggested using nuclear weapons to stop hurricanes — but news website Axios claims there is a formal National Security Council memo proving that he made the suggestion.
Despite Trump's denial of the idea, Axios — which first reported the news — said the president's suggestion of bombing hurricanes was recorded in a National Security Council memo.
It noted that the document did not mention the usage of nuclear weapons, but merely talked about bombing them.
