Trump wants elimination of nuclear weapons from world

Asserting that United States would not be initiating the disarmament rump said,"Until such a time as they do, we will be the most powerful nuclear nation on Earth by far".

Trump has said the U.S. would respond to North Korean provocations with "fire and fury," while North Korea has floated the idea of launching missiles at Guam.

"I know that President Obama said global warming is the biggest threat".

Asked what he considers the biggest national security threat facing the U.S., Winnefeld said, "I've always anxious a lot more about the great powers".

It also seems extremely unlikely that nuclear advancements have been made given that in January, Trump declined to ask Obama's nuclear security head Frank G. Klotz to remain in his position until a replacement could be found (as is customary with appointees in key positions, like those who control our nuclear arsenal), but Klotz is still at his post as under secretary, as indicated by the a NNSA website. Until such time as this scourge disappears, we will be so much better and so much stronger than anybody else.

Despite escalating rhetoric and North Korea's threat to strike Guam, retired Navy Adm. James Winnefeld Jr. told "CBS This Morning" Wednesday that he doesn't believe the isolated country wants to use nuclear weapons against the U.S.

Trump added that Iran is not complying with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the deal that halted the Iranian nuclear program. And to a degree that even Obama might not have anticipated, the Post says, the warning motivated Trump to elevate North Korea to his chief foreign policy concern. He added that the U.S. would be putting more money into its $40 billion ballistic missile defense system.

"We are going to be increasing our budget by many billions of dollars, we'll probably be able to report that over the next week", Sputnik quoted Trump as saying.

Should the day come for Donald Trump to make that speech from the Oval Office about why he's about to do what everyone hopes he never has to do, I think all of us would appreciate a little more accuracy about the underlying facts than we had the last time.

Harrison said that some nuclear weapons, like the intercontinental ballistic missiles, have actually reduced to their lowest level to comply with terms of the treaty. "Right now two inexperienced egomaniacs are facing off with nuclear weapons".
