Trump's approval rating up after tough North Korea talk, new poll shows

Peter Sellers during production of 'Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.'

On Wednesday, Humphrey, a staunch Trump opponent since the primaries, requested that the delegation support the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, which would set up a commission to determine whether the president is mentally fit to serve.

Trump doesn't appear to have done anything more than order a review of the nuclear arsenal. North Korea is run by grade-A blusterers who say insane shit all the time, so it's possible that they don't want to hit that giant red LAUNCH button any more than the rest of the civilized world.

It's still very much around, unimaginably powerful and ready for use at a moment's notice.

And then there is the question of Twitter bots, which form a large percentage of Trump's followers and which the president has even been known to retweet.

By virtually any measure, however, the US nuclear arsenal is smaller and less powerful than it was at its Cold War peak. I would like Russian Federation and the United States, and China and Pakistan, and many other countries that have nuclear weapons get rid of them.

Trump did launch a top-to-bottom Nuclear Posture Review to determine what the role of nuclear weapons in USA security strategy should be, just like each of his recent predecessors did when they took office. Under the New START treaty with Russian Federation that took effect in early 2011, Washington and Moscow have agreed to a limit of 1,550 total deployed weapons.

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.

Only the Navy's 14 ballistic missile submarines, which operate from bases in Georgia and Washington state, continue to sail with the intercontinental weapons they can launch while submerged.

The official added, "He won't even want to listen to the arguments or have a debate". The number of U.S. deployed strategic warheads has decreased since September 1, 2016. If ever the President wanted to fire nuclear weapons, the only way he could do so would be for him first, with his own hands, to kill one human being.

And he's not only destroying things over here in the United States, as we see from this story. He said that if the threats do not cease, the country will face consequences.
