We are the most powerful nation in the world | Trump brags about America's nuclear power

North Korea has taken a major step forward in realizing its goal of becoming a nuclear power according to a Washington Post report on a confidential US intelligence assessment that concludes Pyongyang has developed a nuclear warhead capable of fitting

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".

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.
