Trump wants elimination of nuke weapons from world

| | Washington:

 Nuclear weapons pose greatest threat to the world, US President Donald Trump has said as he favoured a complete elimination of atomic arms by all countries possessing it including Pakistan, China and Russia.

“I would like to de-nuke the world. I know that President Obama said global warming is the biggest threat. I totally disagree. I say that it’s a simple one — Nuclear is our greatest threat worldwide. Not even a question, not even close,” he told reporters yesterday at Bedminster in New Jersey. “So, I’d like to de-nuke the world. I would like Russia and the United States, China and Pakistan, and many other countries that have nuclear weapons, get rid of them,” Trump said.

He said until his aim of a nuclear-free world is achieved, America will be the most powerful nuclear nation on the earth by far. “The first order I gave to my generals, I want this, our nuclear arsenal, to be the biggest and the finest in the world,” Trump said in response to a question.
