Trump Says US Ready To Use Nuclear Weapons

Poll: Most think President Trump should not be on a 17-day working vacation

Several say that the president's tweets indicate that he does not understand the status of the nuclear arsenal and that a significant advance at this point in his presidency would have been impossible.

Even as President Donald Trump says the USA military is "locked and loaded" to potentially unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea, the two feuding countries have been holding secretive, back-channel talks, The Associated Press reported Friday. During Republican presidential debates, Trump appeared stumped by questions about the triad strategy. In addition, the ongoing nuclear modernization plan - which dates back to the Obama administration and will take decades to complete - would not have notched achievements in six months sufficient to be characterized as "far stronger and more powerful than ever before".

Easily lost in this week's apocalyptic taunting across the Pacific Ocean was President Donald Trump's claim that he has personally updated the USA nuclear arsenal. Trump's first action as president was not ordering the Defense Department to conduct a Nuclear Posture Review.

And during that briefing Trump threatened North Korea with nuclear war.

As for the Navy, its aircraft carriers no longer carry tactical nuclear weapons, nor do its surface warships carry nuclear-capable cruise missiles. I mean, he could have said this about Mika Burzynski's face.

"I think we really just need to let them stew in their own juice, leave them alone".

"I wish Democrats would take their hatred of Donald Trump and park it and realize that on Donald Trump's watch, because of everyone else's failure, he's run out of the ability to kick the can down the road", Mr.

Administration spokespeople tried to assure the public that Trump's apocalyptic "fire and fury" language was improvised and, as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, Americans should not be concerned about the worsening rhetoric from both sides. When Trump says, 'We'll see, ' it usually means he gets kind of passive, right? Part of this commitment is to be sure that American ally South Korea is not destroyed, especially when the USA allowed North Korea to have a nuclear weapon.

Stephen Schwartz, an independent nuclear-weapons policy analyst and author of "Atomic Audit: The Costs and Consequences of US Nuclear Weapons Since 1940", tweeted that Trump's claim to have significantly modernized and improved the US' arsenal was "patently absurd".
