Trump Calls on US to Strengthen Nuclear Weapons Capability

Washington, US President-elect Donald Trump called for a strengthening of America’s nuclear weapons programme.

Trump tweeted: “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.” The comment came on the same day that also Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed his country’s nuclear capacity.

“We need to strengthen the military potential of strategic nuclear forces, especially with missile complexes that can reliably penetrate any existing and prospective missile defence systems,” Putin said.
