Moments before President Donald Trump’s diagnosis, which was positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus, the presence of two Boeing E-6B Mercury aircraft was detected flying over both coasts of the United States.
The flights of the aircraft known as the U.S. Navy’s ‘doomsday planes’ had been planned in advance, and according to a U.S. Strategic Command spokesman the flight operations and the announcement about the health status of the president and first lady was “purely coincidental,” Fox News reported.
Trackers on social networks noticed that a Boeing E-6B Mercury was flying along the East Coast and another was seen in the air over Oregon.
Tim Hogan, an open source practitioner, implied on his Twitter account that it couldn’t be an accident that the E-6 were in the air on both coasts in the minutes before President Trump announced that he was infected.
RT There's an E-6B Mercury off the east coast near DC. I looked because I would expect them to pop up if he tests positive. It's a message to the small group of adversaries with SLBMs and ICBMs. pic.twitter.com/3ta9PmPxZD

The United States government uses E-6B to transmit instructions to the fleet of ballistic submarines that are distributed in waters around the world. The ships have the capability to deploy ballistic missiles.
According to Forbes, “In an atomic war, the E-6s would relay orders to the Ohio boomers, helping the ships’ crews to target enemy cities and military bases with nuclear-tipped Trident submarine-launched ballistic missiles, or SLBMs.”
Forbes noted that the operations of both aircraft that had taken off from Oklahoma Air Force Base were for “training purposes.”
It also indicated that the military officers would probably want to be seen. “Hogan tracked the E-6s on public software that registers airplanes’ radio transponders. Military planes often switch off their transponders in order to avoid being tracked. If a military jet’s transponders are on, it’s because their crews want to be seen,” Forbes said.
The E-6B Mercuriess is part of the Pentagon’s 16th Fleet and operates as a nuclear command post. According to Just The News, the four-engine aircraft is a modified version of the Boeing 707 and has integrated special communication systems and the crew can command the Navy’s Ohio class nuclear ballistic missile submarines.
Fox News reported that airborne command post operations generated speculation about a warning directed at America’s enemies after news of President Trump’s positive test was released.
A senior defense official told Fox, there has been “no change to the posture of the U.S. military” regarding the defense of the U.S. president. “The president remains the commander-in-chief.”
U.S. Defense Department spokesman Johnathan Hoffman said there was no change in “alert levels.”
“The U.S. military stands ready to defend our country and interests. There’s no change to the readiness or capability of our armed forces. Our national command and control structure is in no way affected by this announcement,” Hoffman said in connection with the president’s announcement of the CCP Virus, CNBC reported.
Hoffman also said that both Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, who had met with President Trump last Sunday at the White House, were tested for the virus and were negative.
