Trump is pulling out of a 30 year treaty with Russia that bans a wide array of nuclear weapons because Moscow violated the agreement.


When asked what that meant practically, he said "We'll have to develop those weapons."



"We have $450 billion, $110 billion of which is a military order, but this is equipment and various things ordered from Saudi Arabia," Trump told reporters. 

"It's over a million jobs; that's not helpful for us to cancel an order like that. That hurts us far more than it hurts them," he added, noting Riyadh could obtain the weapons from other countries like China or Russia.

"But there are other things that could be done, including sanctions."


.....oh, the insanity......🙄

Is this a response to those new weapons by Russia?

Russia's new hypersonic missile, which can be launched from warplanes, will likely be ready for combat by 2020

Russia has successfully tested a hypersonic missile the United States is currently unable to defend against, according to sources with direct knowledge of U.S. intelligence reports. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/13/russia-new-hypersonic-missile-likely-ready-for-war-by-2020.html

Trump said Friday he would discuss reducing nuclear weapons when he meets Putin in Helsinki.

"If we can do something to substantially reduce them, I mean, ideally get rid of them, maybe that's a dream, but certainly it's a subject that I'll be bringing up with him," Trump said. "The proliferation is a tremendous, I mean, to me, it's the biggest problem in the world, nuclear weapons, biggest problem in the world."

Meanwhile, America's top nuclear commander has described a grim scenario for U.S. forces facing off against these new types of high-speed weapons that both Russia and China are developing.

"We don't have any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon against us," Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee in March. This means that, as of now, the U.S. has to rely on deterrence against these so-called hypersonic weapons, he said.

"Both Russia and China are aggressively pursuing hypersonic capabilities," Hyten said. "We've watched them test those capabilities."
