Just in Time for Christmas, Commander-in-Hack Donald Trump Calls for More Nukes
Donald Trump apparently has been hitting the pipe again. On December 22, he tweeted:
“The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

Trump’s reckless comments have drawn concerns from several nuclear weapons experts.
Kingston Reif, director of disarmament and threat reduction policy for the Arms Control Association, called Thursday’s tweet a “very bad sign.”
“Even before these recent statements, the path we have been on is reckless and ill-advised and in need of a major course correction,” Reif told The Huffington Post on Thursday. “Pouring more gasoline on the fire is exactly the opposite of what is needed.”
