Former Obama Official Praises Trump's National Security Team

Not Released

"North Korea knew exactly what President Obama was going to do", Watters added. Answering questions about the crisis with North Korea, he said that if he had his druthers he would commit to nuclear nonproliferation around the world.

It is still unclear whether Twitter intends to act on requests for Trump's account to be suspended.

"That brings us to the current standoff", Tapper said, after listing these concerns about Trump and nuclear weapons.

By virtually any measure, however, the USA nuclear arsenal is smaller and less powerful than it was at its Cold War peak.

According to The Hill, Trump was apparently referring to the Nuclear Posture Review, a legislatively mandated examination of American nuclear capabilities and strategy. That is a very unsafe situation when nobody among your ally countries respects your leader, that they do not view him as a very serious person, and more important as the interview states, they don't view him as an intelligent person.

Harrison also pointed out that the modernization of the nuclear arsenal began under Obama's administration as part of a deal he made with Senate Republicans to get the New START treaty ratified by the Senate.

In addition, the USA military is limited in how many weapons can be deployed under the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty signed in 2010.

European Union adds nine people, four entities to North Korea sanctions list
The EU's sanctions are seen as its efforts to intensify pressure against North Korea amid the escalating war of words between Pyongyang and Washington.

The challenge, however, is to avoid falling into the trap that improved nuclear weapons, as a deterrent, raises the appeal of using them in battle.

Only the Navy's 14 ballistic missile submarines, which operate from bases in Georgia and Washington state, continue to sail with the intercontinental weapons they can launch while submerged.

On Monday, two US B-1 bombers flew from Guam over the Korean peninsula as part of its "continuous bomber presence", a U.S. official said, in a sign of the island's strategic importance.

In fact, Trump's "first order as president" was an executive order seeking to repeal Obamacare, and had nothing to do with strengthening nuclear arsenal.

Guam governor Eddie Calvo dismissed the threat and said the island was prepared for "any eventuality" with strategically placed defences.

And he's not only destroying things over here in the United States, as we see from this story.
