Donald Trump has made it clear, he is threatening to nuke North Korea. Trump’s latest tweet — “My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before” — is the latest act of brinkmanship between the U.S. and North Korea.
Trump doesn’t say he’s completed the act of renovating our arsenal — that takes way longer than 7 months — but he claims he began the process back in January. It’s hard to know how long anything takes to develop or renovate in the nuclear world … no one thought North Korea could do what it’s now doing.
Trump went on to say, “Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world.”
He seems to be making it clear … when he said Tuesday that further threats by North Korea would be met by “fire and fury,” he was talking nuclear bombs.
