Most will not recall that during the Clinton -Trump debates, Hillary did raise the issue of whether Americans wanted Donald Trump’s fingers on the nuclear devices of our nation. Somehow, this minor point never received any attention since the media and the public were more interested in very important issues such as emails, past and present. More Americans paid attention to the words of warning from the FBI Director than who should be responsible for control, for development or use of nuclear weapons.
Donald Trump suddenly has introduced a topic that every American president since Harry Truman in 1952 agued for control and disarmament as keys to peace in the world. But, Donald wants to investigate new paths towards peace. “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until the time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.” As of this point only about seven nations have a nuclear device. So, the world would like to know what President Trump means by “coming to its senses.”
