Trump says U.S. nuclear arsenal stronger than ever

Trump to Kim Jong-un Yes, One False Move And We'll Nuke You

Twenty-three years ago, when then-President Clinton threatened military action against North Korea if it did not abandon its nuclear plans, the Korean regime laughed because they knew Clinton was a weasel, afraid to take worldwide chances. During Republican presidential debates, Trump appeared stumped by questions about the triad strategy.

Donald Trump is one of the most active Twitter users as far as heads of state go, and, more often than not, he says exactly what he thinks [VIDEO]without much of a filter.

Trump ordered a new review of the USA nuclear posture, in an executive order in January. But, as we wrote, Trump's "first order" was not about nuclear weapons, and the modernization plans now underway were started during the Obama administration.

President Donald Trump is taking time away from his working-vacation to deal with the ever growing threat from North Korea.

Nine countries have or are believed to have nuclear weapons, according to the Arms Control Association. "I think that's why the rhetoric coming out of Pyongyang is beginning to become louder and more threatening".

Trump matched North Korean nuclear threats with dire warnings of his own. "Instead, the United States must face down this threat by leading with a firm, thoughtful strategy that unifies the worldwide community and engages China against North Korea's unacceptable aggression".

We also know that Obama is not a big fan of Trump. He said the president was trying to send a strong and clear message to North Korea's leader so that there wouldn't be "any miscalculation". "He will ask, 'Did Obama approve this?' And if the answer is affirmative, he will say: 'We don't'".

Meanwhile, it was reported that a fact sheet has been distributed among Guam residents in light of North Korea's threat to attack the USA territory.

The same strongman posturing has also been behind Trump's dismissal of the Obama-era "strategic patience" approach to North Korea as so much politically correct code, even if, as some pundits have observed, the same policy has been mostly maintained behind the scenes.

Ben Rhodes, a former deputy national security adviser for the Obama administration, tweeted on Wednesday morning that it was "literally impossible" for Trump to have changed the nuclear program in so little time. "He's going to stop the threat".
