Donald Trump says he wants to ‘greatly strengthen and expand’ U.S. nuclear capability, a radical break from U.S. foreign policy

President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday called for the United States to expand its nuclear arsenal, after Russian President Vladi­mir Putin said his country’s nuclear potential needs fortifying, raising the specter of a new arms race that would reverse decades of efforts to reduce the number and size of the two countries’ nuclear weapons.

In a tweet that offered no details, Trump said, “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

During the campaign, Trump talked in one debate about the need to modernize the country’s infrastructure of nuclear weaponry, saying the United States is falling behind. But it is not clear whether Trump is thinking of increasing the number of nuclear weapons the United States possesses, or updating the existing supply.

Trump’s tweet came shortly after Putin, during a defense ministry meeting, talked tough on Russia’s stockpile of nuclear weapons.

    We need the strongest military in the world, do what ever it takes, peace thru strength is the only way to go. Let our generals decide not some limp wristed politician.

  • justinwachin says:

    Donald Trump may use the Reagan play book in dealing with the Soviets–talk about plans to build your nuclear arsenal and make your enemies think you are crazy enough to use them.

    Hopefully our military has non-nuclear weapons in its arsenal that are just as lethal as nukes. If our enemies don’t know those weapons exists that makes it even better.

  • Tiger says:

    As soon as O continued to let our nukes go into disrepair and we were hearing this from the military, along with taking out our Officers from the top down, then watching as he snuggled up to all our enemies and cowardly backed down from Red Lines etc and actually killed Gadaffi no imminent threat and then encouraged Egypt to take on a Muslim Bortherhood Morsi our enemies knew it was Free Olly Oxen Free Free Free for all.

    The leaks are going to be plugged and the swamp drained.

    I hope this means that President Trump will dump Obama’s Muslim terrorist brothers as our, cough, friends?

      He will. Trump has already said that he is going to declare the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization.
