Trump's weird brag about the nuclear arsenal doesn't square with reality

He said the president's threat to North Korea was "like pouring gasoline on a fire".

Earlier on Wednesday, North Korea said it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike Guam, which is home to about 163,000 people and a USA military base that includes a submarine squadron, an airbase and a Coast Guard group.

The contention in these tweets is not based in reality.

The now deceased lawyer, who advised both the U.S. and Iranian governments during the 1981 hostage crisis, wrote of the nuclear codes: "My suggestion was quite simple: Put that needed code number in a little capsule, and then implant that capsule right next to the heart of a volunteer".

But if North Korea escalates, the USA must be prepared to escalate to massive disarming strikes, including use of nuclear weapons.

While mimicking Trump, Baldwin often incorporates words the president favors into his routines, like "tremendous", "amazing", and "incredible". Every recent president has authorized one, and any current improvements to the nuclear arsenal are the result of President Obama's last assessment in 2010.

Because the sprawling nuclear force will take so long to rebuild, the arsenal is more or less at the same level of strength as it was when Trump took office seven months ago.

Harrison also pointed out that the modernization of the nuclear arsenal began under Obama's administration as part of a deal he made with Senate Republicans to get the New START treaty ratified by the Senate.

But nuclear weapons experts said that the President's claims are spurious on several levels.

President Trump speaks about North Korea during an opioid-related briefing. As if they had the Trump insignia painted on them and tourists could pick up souvenir versions in the gift shop off the Trump Tower lobby. He's on pace to set a record for golfing days (unofficially estimated at 46 rounds at the 28-week mark compared to a dozen at the same point in Barack Obama's presidency).

According to The Hill, Trump was apparently referring to the Nuclear Posture Review, a legislatively mandated examination of American nuclear capabilities and strategy.

Trump's approval rating in the daily Gallup presidential tracking poll now stands at just 37 percent.

Trump appears to have been careful with his wording. No debate, no discussion, no understanding at all of what they were actually talking about.
