Trump Wants U.S. Nuclear Arsenal at ‘Top of the Pack’

President Trump on Thursday told Reuters reporters that he wants to make sure the U.S. nuclear arsenal is at the “top of the pack” but that he’s concerned the nation has “fallen behind on nuclear weapon capacity.” He added, “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.” According to anti-nuclear group the Ploughshares Fund, the U.S. has 6,800 warheads, and Russia has 7,000 warheads. Trump added, “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.”
