President Trump said, while he was in Washington during a cnn interview, that he would increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal until other countries come to their senses. After he said this, he started the process of withdrawing from the Cold War nuclear treaty. This treaty was a series of disarmament and nonproliferation treaties,or treaties of agreement to not have nuclear warfare or build nuclear weapons against others to fight. These were agreed on between the U.S, the Soviet Union and Several others.

 

Trump also announced that he intended to pull the United States out of the INF (Intermediate Range nuclear force treaty) with Russia and accused Moscow of violating the deal. The signing of the treaty in 1987 was seen as the end of the Cold War, while eliminating thousands of land-based missiles ranging from approximately 300 to 3400 miles. While the president was being interviewed by a time magazine writer, he said, “Until people come to their senses, we will build it up.”

 

The president blamed China, Russia and other countries of breaking their promises and breaking their contracts, but for the U.S., including China  was wrong and was only important for maintaining global strategic balance and stability. Reasons to do this was because the president is trying to scare the other countries in submission so he can put them “back into their places.” one student at skyline thinks that it is a good and bad thing that Trump is building up our nuclear weapons, Ian Harward (11) said “On the US expanding its nuclear arsenal, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. It’s not necessarily a good thing, but it’s not a bad thing. I think that expanding our arsenal again will cause the many countries and factions who seek to destroy our country to think twice about it.”
