The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Donald Trump goes back on his previous statements, attacks media

liarDonald Trump Conveniently Forgets The Time He Said More Countries Should Have Nukes  http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/donald-trump-nuclear-weapons_us_5828903be4b0c4b63b0d1c7d   The president-elect on Sunday railed about the “dishonest” media.
 14/11/2016 Donald Trump on Sunday continued to walk back some of his most controversial campaign rhetoric.

The president-elect went on a mini-tirade against The New York Times on Twitter, taking issue with the way the newspaper described his past statements about nuclear proliferation.

In fact, Trump did say he was open to more countries getting nuclear weapons ― in an interview with the very same newspaper back in March.

 “Well I think maybe it’s not so bad to have Japan — if Japan had that nuclear threat, I’m not sure that would be a bad thing for us,” he said.

Nor would it be so bad, Trump has said, if countries like South Korea and Saudi Arabia had nukes, too.

 “It’s going to happen, anyway,” he said in an interview with CNN. “It’s going to happen anyway. It’s only a question of time. They’re going to start having them or we have to get rid of them entirely. But you have so many countries already, China, Pakistan, you have so many countries, Russia, you have so many countries right now that have them.”

  1. Transcript: Donald Trump Expounds on His Foreign Policy Views – The New York Times (March 27, 2016)
    “TRUMP: An absolute last step. I think it’s the biggest, I personally think it’s the biggest problem the world has, nuclear capability. I think it’s the single biggest problem. When people talk global warming, I say the global warming that we have to be careful of is the nuclear global warming. Single biggest problem that the world has. Power of weaponry today is beyond anything ever thought of, or even, you know, it’s unthinkable, the power. You look at Hiroshima and you can multiply that times many, many times, is what you have today. And to me, it’s the single biggest, it’s the single biggest problem.” https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20160421082652/http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/27/us/politics/donald-trump-transcript.html
