Even better Trump news


The Trump news just keeps on Trumping!:

BBC - American government doesn't trust Trump with the nukes. Gee, wonder why:

Some senators present said they were troubled about the president's latitude to launch a nuclear strike.

Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, said: "We are concerned that the president is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic, that he might order a nuclear-weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national-security interests."

One of the experts, C Robert Kehler, who was commander of the US Strategic Command from 2011-13, said that in his former role he would have followed the president's order to carry out the strike - if it were legal.

He said if he were uncertain about its legality, he would have consulted with his own advisers.

Under certain circumstances, he explained: "I would have said, 'I'm not ready to proceed.'"

One senator, Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, asked: "Then what happens?"

Mr Kehler admitted: "I don't know."

People in the room laughed. But it was a nervous laugh.

The same laugh they laughed when Orange was elected, except now with nuclear weapons.
