Should Donald Trump be banned from Twitter?

Should Donald Trump be banned from Twitter?”

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.

"It's completely false", Jeffrey Lewis, Director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, told BuzzFeed News on Wednesday.

The same strongman posturing has also been behind Trump's dismissal of the Obama-era "strategic patience" approach to North Korea as so much politically correct code, even if, as some pundits have observed, the same policy has been mostly maintained behind the scenes.

Even in the event of a conflict, North Korea's intercontinental missiles would not be able to reach D.C., according to news reports.

Popular Video This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. He said that if the threats do not cease, the country will face consequences.

But the fact that these diplomats, who do have the job of having to meet with Donald Trump, having to work with him when he goes on these overseas trips, the fact that they see him as a laughingstock is not anything that people in the United States should be laughing at.

He echoed his tough stance against North Korea in a series of tweets August 9, according to The Hill.

Could US President Donald Trump's Twitter account be suspended for "threatening violence" against North Korea?

"Alarming thing to lie about".

In addition to the review of the nuclear force, the White House has also proposed a $1.4-billion budget increase for the National Nuclear Security Administration, which oversees the nuclear weapons enterprise.

Mr. Trump's "first order" refers to a January 27 presidential memorandum ordering a new Nuclear Posture Review, characterized by the Pentagon as "legislatively mandated" and the basis of nuclear policy.

Trump's distinctive speaking style has been widely imitated, most notably by actor Alec Baldwin, who often parodies the president on NBC's "Saturday Night Live".

Trump issued his strongest warning yet for North Korea in comments to reporters in New Jersey on Tuesday, saying that "North Korea best not make any more threats to the US".

While Reif says that the United States now possesses a nuclear arsenal that's more than adequate for defense needs-boasting some 4,000 nuclear warheads, close to half of which are now deployed at various bases-it's also not true that the arsenal is "stronger and more powerful than ever before".
