Trump's obsession with President Obama spins dangerously out of control

Preemptive Strike on the Table

Preemptive Strike on the Table

As North Korea continues to develop it nuclear capabilities, President Donald Trump tweeted that the USA has modernized its own nuclear arsenal and is prepared to use it if necessary.

Let's deconstruct the president's statement. He said that's the first order he gave to his generals. He may be confused about this. The order included a call to "initiate a new Nuclear Posture Review to ensure that the United States nuclear deterrent is modern, robust, flexible, resilient, ready, and appropriately tailored to deter 21st-century threats and reassure our allies".

Sure, Trump is often whimsical and sometimes loose with facts on certain issues, but it's hard to argue that he is somehow in the wrong for wanting to protect our national security.

Probably not helping Trump's fragile ego this week was the news that the IL legislature recently passed a law naming Obama's birthday, August 4, "Barack Obama Day" across the state.

While Obama pledged billions of dollars to modernizing the arsenal, the program is in its early stages.

But there is "more continuity than there is change" during the review, Kimball said, and no official guidance is offered until after the review is complete.

Trump's historical bad approval rating today stands in exact contrast to the widespread support Obama enjoyed his first 200 days in office, as he worked to pass a series of landmark bills that helped rescue the US economy.

SEOUL - The South Korean government on Thursday postponed a formal survey on the advanced USA missile defense system deployed in the southern region due to a fierce protest by local residents. Only then will the Department of Defense revitalize the country's nuclear weapons.

Washington Post reporter Karen Tumulty said on Twitter that it was actually Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, who launched a $1-trillion modernization of the nuclear arsenal.

THE FACTS: Trump did order a new review of the US nuclear posture, in an executive order in January. A new generation is learning that America's nuclear arsenal is on a hairtrigger.

Donald Trump followed up his rolling disaster of press events Thursday by ending the day the way he started it: humblebragging about a poll that really wasn't all that good news for him.
