As many experts have explained, updating the USA nuclear arsenal would takes years - if not decades - not the six months Trump has been in office. "I would like Russian Federation and the United States and China and Pakistan, and many other countries that have nuclear weapons, get rid of them, but until such time as they do, we will be the most powerful nuclear nation on Earth by far", he said.

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.

SEOUL - A meeting of South Korea's National Security Council (NSC) was set to be held later Thursday, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said, apparently to discuss North Korea's fresh threat to stage a missile provocation against the United States. 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".

And then there is the question of Twitter bots, which form a large percentage of Trump's followers and which the president has even been known to retweet. It is in tip-top shape, and getting better and getting stronger.

Trump signed an executive order in January directing the Pentagon to do a new nuclear posture review - a standard move for incoming administrations. "And nobody, including North Korea, is going to be threatening us with anything", he said. Talking about the Russia sacking 755 workers of the US Embassy in Moscow, Trump thanked his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, boasting that the move would cut payrolls and save him some money. As you know, we reduced it by 5 percent, but I've decided I don't want that. "There's no real reflection in the budget, it's just a continuation - they didn't stop anything, they didn't slow anything down and they also didn't accelerate anything".

The report says that in his first 126 days of office, the Trump administration suffered 125 leaks that were "potentially damaging to national security". Moscow had last month announced counter measures in response to tough new sanctions proposed by the United States, ordering Washington to reduce its diplomatic staff.
