"How President Trump Could Bring About A Safer Greater World Peace"
This whole article was very interesting, but, I am only going to quote a few pivitol paragraphs.

paradoxical, confusing and incredible. Yet Trump shows many
credible signs of a commitment to world peace. He credibly
expresses ardor to achieve deep reduction in the world's nuclear
The deciding factor in whether Trump succeeds just might be
whether the left can tactically put aside its visceral detestation
of Donald Trump. Will the left invest its money, time, and street
energy to create a climate wherein our nuclear weapons can be
halved, maybe even dropped by another 90%, maybe even
prohibited and effectively eliminated in the same manner as
chemical and biological warfare agents?
Working with, rather than militantly opposing, Trump would be
better for the left. Yet this end certainly justifies this means. It's
not clear that Trump can do this alone. There is a story, probably
apocryphal, attributed to FDR upon his being approached by a
group of activists. FDR supposedly replied: "I agree with you, I
want to do it, now go out and make me do it."
Will the American people, especially the left for whom scrapping
nuclear weapons has been a perennial issue, now step up and make
Donald Trump do what he wants to do: creating a world with fewer
....perhaps no.... nuclear weapons? A window of opportunity opens.
