Donald Trump is at it again… no not grabbing pussy’s but ranting about nuclear weapons and how the world is crazy for not having them.
‘The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes,’ Trump tweeted from his Mar-a-Lago resort, just a day after meeting key Pentagon leaders, some of whom are charged with overseeing the nation’s nukes.
The comments come after Russian President Vladimir Putin said his own country needed more nuclear weapons.
‘We need to strengthen the military potential of strategic nuclear forces, especially with missile complexes that can reliably penetrate any existing and prospective missile defense systems,’ Putin said in a speech recapping Russia’s 2016 military activities.
The United States has 7,100 nuclear weapons, while Russia has 7,300, according to the Arms Control Association, a U.S.-based nonpartisan group.
It goes against everything Obama stood for, who was trying the reduce the amount of nuclear weapons but you know peace and humility isn’t exactly Trump’s forte is it?
‘Presidents George W. Bush and Obama both noted during their campaigns that the United States and Russia are still postured on what they call a hair trigger,’ former Sen. Sam Nunn told the Post in March 2016.
He had previously sponsored Senate legislation that would get the United States to assist Russia in securing its nuclear materials.
‘We still have the ability to destroy each other in 30 minutes to an hour’s time,’ Nunn said. ‘Both of them said they would improve that, and as far as I can tell, neither has.’
I kind of see Obama as our answer to Luke Skywalker and Trump as… You know who
