President Trump bragged Friday that America is "building, right now, incredible military equipment," with the commander-in-chief adding that "we have, I call it, the 'super duper missile.'"

What makes it so super duper? "I heard the other night, [it is] 17 times faster than what they have right now, when you take the fastest missile we have right now," Trump went on. "You've heard Russia has five times and China's working on five or six times. We have one 17 times, and it's just gotten the go-ahead."
