Besides, John ... Don't you think the Russians and the Chinese already know that the U.S. defense industry is always working on newer and better stuff? Hell, if they weren't, there wouldn't be any reason to spy on us. That was Trump being Trump, but he didn't really reveal anything specific.
They know that you're working on newer and better stuff? Sure ... so is every other nation. Just as every other nation is trying to find out what you're working on.............. But that doesn't mean the President should help them in their endeavors to spy on you.

@DonDeeHippy As good as those countries are at espionage, they probably know all about whatever we have.
That's not the point.. He is a man you say doesnt want war and is bragging about the new Nuke weapons he has.... Why didnt he fire everyone involved and say no Nuke's in my time thank you, not on my watch.......

Because there is a difference between seeking peace and being foolish. For us to become nuke-free, everyone would have to become nuke-free. And, it is much easier to seek peace from a position of strength than from a position of weakness.

Why should the US be the only ones allowed to have nukes?

Surely you should lead by example and get rid of yours first.

What gives America the right to dictate what the rest of the world does?

Yes, like North Korea and Iran.

The US is dictating what other countries should do.

EXACTLY like North Korea and Iran.

Why is it bad when they do it, but good when the US does it?
I have a problem with the premise of the question. It isn’t good that anyone has nukes. So the fewer countries that have them, the better.

I don’t think it helps, hurts, or even matters. It’s just Trump being Trump.
yes it's important to have enough nuke bombs to kill the entire world over 15 times... 14 just isn't enough....
Nothing says lets get serious about nuke disarment like like making a bunch of new ones hey Seth :)
