Trump wants ten times nuclear arsenalPresident Donald Trump said he wants the U.S. to have as many nuclear weapons today as it did before signing a nonproliferation treaty in 1968 during a meeting with America’s military leaders in July, according to a report.

Two officials present at the Pentagon meeting on July 20 told NBC News about Trump’s request.

When Trump was shown a slide of the decline of America’s nuclear weapons stockpile since signing the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in 1968, the officials said, he told the meeting he wanted the U.S. to have as many as it did at its peak.
