Trump Open To Growing America's Nuclear Arsenal

In an exclusive interview with Reuters last week President Donald Trump indicated that he is ready to boost the number of America’s nuclear weapons. Trump said he wants the U.S. "at the top of the pack," when it comes to its nuclear arsenal. 

According to anti-proliferation group Ploughshares Fund, the Russian Federation has 7,000 warheads and the United States has around 6,800. For a closer look at Trump's policy on nuclear weapons we turn to Kevin Martin, executive director of Peace Action.
