In another mindless attempt to undermine and denigrate President Donald Trump, Democrats have introduced a bill to take the nuclear football from the President’s hands. There is no way this is going to happen. Any student of history knows that the Executive Office was given the responsibility to ensure that the United States could protect itself. Claiming that Mr. Trump is not capable is only a political grandstand play. Geez.
As Written by Edmund DeMarche and reported by Fox News:
Two Democrats introduced legislation Tuesday that would prevent President Trump from launching a nuclear weapon without a congressional declaration of war.
Foreign Policy reported that the bill was introduced by Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif. The article notes that Lieu has a paper sign outside his office that reads, “Alternative Fact Free Zone.”
Under current law, the U.S. president can order a first-use nuclear strike even if the U.S. is not under nuclear attack.
Trump was asked by ABC News Wednesday about the responsibility of receiving the nuclear codes and responded that it was a “very sobering moment.” “It’s very, very, very, scary in a sense.”
During the campaign, Hillary Clinton made it a point hit Trump on his temperament and what she called his erratic use of Twitter. She said, “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”
