US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is reported to have asked why the United States can’t use nuclear weapons!
He posed the question before a foreign policy expert who has been advising him.
The revelation was made by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Wednesday on his “Morning Joe” program.
The TV host based his claim on an unnamed source who said he had spoken with Trump.
“Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times (Trump) asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can’t we use them,” Scarborough said on the show.
Scarborough made the revelation while interviewing former Director of Central Intelligence and ex-National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden.
The Trump campaign has rejected the claims.
Outgoing President Barack Obama has already described Trump as “unfit to serve as President”.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, too has said that Trump can’t be trusted with nukes.
“A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons,” she has said.
Harvard Republican will not endorse Trump
For the first time in 128 years, the Harvard Republican Club will not endorse the party’s presidential nominee Donald Trump for the top post, condemning his “racist and misogynistic rhetoric” and repeated “belittling” of sacrifices made by uniformed personnel.
In a scathing attack on the 70-year-old leader, the Club, the oldest College Republicans chapter in the nation, said its members are “ashamed” of Trump just as President Ronald Reagan would be.
The Club called on fellow Republicans to withdraw their support to the “dangerous” man, describing him a “threat to the survival of the Republic”.
Lashing out at Trump, the Club said he “simply” does not possess the “temperament and character” necessary to lead the US through an “increasingly perilous world” and in response to any “slight?perceived or real”, he lashes out “viciously and irresponsibly”.
The Club said it will not stand for his “vitriolic rhetoric” that “poisoning” the country and its children.
“We call on our party’s elected leaders to renounce their support of Donald Trump, and urge our fellow College Republicans to join us in condemning and withholding their endorsement from this dangerous man. The conservative movement in America should not and will not go quietly into the night,” the Club said in a post on Facebook.
