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 Russian Federation.

"My expectation is it will take several more months to complete the Nuclear Posture Review, and the Ballistic Missile Defense Review will follow it, because the second review is actually informed by numerous strategic choices that will be made in the Nuclear Posture Review", said Silva.

Trump also initially proposed a 2018 budget that would cut $340 million from missile defense programs meant to deter a potential strike by North Korea, Iran or other countries. Public Policy Polling, for example, pointed out that in its recent polling, which is scientific, "voters said 53-40 they wished Obama was still President". I totally disagree. I say that, it's a simple one, nuclear is our greatest threat worldwide.

Asserting that United States would not be initiating the disarmament rump said,"Until such a time as they do, we will be the most powerful nuclear nation on Earth by far".

In his latest tweet, Trump expressed the refined and active state of America's nuclear weapons, he seems to be sending a message communicating the sharpened state of his sword and ready to fight.

Trump allies have echoed his obsession, forcing the government to waste money in a futile effort to prove Trump's inauguration was as popular as Obama's.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Trump told reporters on Tuesday. It is in tip-top shape, and getting better and getting stronger.

Whether that's now being spurred on by the stress of the unfolding North Korea crisis, Trump's tumbling approval rating, the enveloping Russian Federation investigation, or his inability to get any major legislation passed through Congress, we're not sure.

Trump said his administration will be increasing military budget by many billions of dollars because of the North Korean threat and other reasons.

"Literally nothing has happened in the last 201 days to increase the overall power of the U.S. nuclear arsenal", Schwartz said. As you know, we reduced it by 5 percent, but I've decided I don't want that. It's unclear what effect they may have on the back-channel contacts being maintained by Yun.

"The nuclear arsenal is the same as it was the day before inauguration day", said Daryl G. Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association.
