Trump Wanted Tenfold Increase in Nuclear Arsenal, Surprising Military

President Donald Trump said he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a gathering this past summer of the nation’s highest ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room.

Trump’s comments, the officials said, came in response to a briefing slide he was shown that charted the steady reduction of U.S. nuclear weapons since the late 1960s. Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve.

According to the officials present, Trump’s advisers, among them the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, were surprised. Officials briefly explained the legal and practical impediments to a nuclear buildup and how the current military posture is stronger than it was at the height of the build-up. In interviews, they told NBC News that no such expansion is planned.

The July 20 meeting was described as a lengthy and sometimes tense review of worldwide U.S. forces and operations. It was soon after the meeting broke up that officials who remained behind heard Tillerson say that Trump is a “moron.”

President Trump reportedly told national security leaders in July he wanted to increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal by tenfold, which prompted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call the president "a moron."

In a July meeting, Trump said he wanted more nuclear weapons when he was shown a briefing slide of the U.S. and Russia's nuclear capabilities, NBC News reported Wednesday. The chart showed the U.S. arsenal was at its peak in the late 1960s.

Officials present at the Pentagon meeting told the news outlet that Trump's advisers and Tillerson were surprised by the request. Officials explained to the president the legal and practical ramifications of such actions.

But hey, this is all part of Trump's master plan to mess with everyone's head.   Roll Eyes   

Can't wait for the "Trump is a master mind control genius" people to spin this, or the dim bulbs to cry fake news.


Reality: Trump is a demagogue who knows how to manipulate the media and exploit divisions in the country for an endless succession of squirrels. That's it. That's his skill set in total.

It's the fact that he says something so completely stupid. That he even thinks there would be value in this. That he would even be so stupid as to FLOAT IT with that crowd is inexcusable.

The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes
