Trump's an idiot surrounded by idiots but I don't really think he's stupid enough to go for MADHow much of it is speculation and how much fact...... we really never know. Imo Two very powerful world leaders would not suggest braking a treaty without using it as leverage for requiring a better deal.
Just one big flash and charcoal if you're lucky but to be honest I don't think it will ever happen. Trump might be an idiot surrounded by idiots but if he even contemplated a nuclear strike wiser heads would intervenei doubt it's a negotiation tactic, I think Russia just broke the treaty, the US gave them a time period to comply with the treaty that lapsed and so the treaty is history.
And so the doomsday cloc ticks down a few more seconds.
The Donald is playing it straight from the 'Evil Dictator' playbook. Give the prols the promise of jobs and a 'them' to rally against while keeping the 'elite' sweet with tax breaks and a grateful work force. "Make America Great Again".... not sure how you would define "great" (a clever move, different things to different people) but its not like the US has turned into a "shitehole" country. There is a lot of dangerous rhetoric getting thrown about, at best, its ignorant, what scares me is its intentional and pandering to racists as part of his next campaign. Saying offensive and racist things to try and win votes is a cynical and horrible thing, it says something when you hope that the POTUS is ignorant rather than willing to pander to such a low denominator to get another 4 years in power.I'm not simply looking at his economic policies but I am looking at his social policies which by no stretch of the imagination can be considered positive in a good way for the USA. I speak on avery regular basis (video calls) with three American friends, two are Democrats and one Republican and even he dislikes Trump big time. Their general view is that his tax cuts are loved by higher earners and the poor people are frightened by the threats to the American way of life that Donald spouts. He reminds me of Hitler, Adolph inspired a Jewish hatred which focused the German population, with Trump he's using immigration and middle east 'threats'
I can't vote tory or labour with Baby Bo and Jerry at the helm of their respective parties so its Plaid Cymru for me The UK is really in political limbo and we've become the laughing stock of Europe.
