President Donald Trump said on Thursday he wants to ensure the U.S. nuclear arsenal is at the “top of the pack,” saying the United States has fallen behind in its weapons capacity.
In his first comments about the U.S. nuclear arsenal since taking office on Jan. 20, Trump was asked about a December tweet in which he said the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capacity “until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”
Trump said in the interview he would like to see a world with no nuclear weapons but expressed concern that the United States has “fallen behind on nuclear weapon capacity.”
“I am the first one that would like to see … nobody have nukes, but we’re never going to fall behind any country even if it’s a friendly country, we’re never going to fall behind on nuclear power.
“It would be wonderful, a dream would be that no country would have nukes, but if countries are going to have nukes, we’re going to be at the top of the pack,” Trump said.

Sadly, that’s literally all I have to say. I’m out of words for all of this, and this worst part is, there’s no shortage of shit to report on…
BTW… if you want to know where I’m seeing all of this, I’m subscribed to AJ+’s TrumpTracker which, every day in the evening, sends me a list of headlines outlining what the Cheeto Fascist has done that day. You can subscribe here, if you can stomach it…
