President Trump talked about the military and America’s nuclear arsenal from the White House Monday, and his remarks will put the fear of God in America’s enemies.

“We’re increasing arsenals of virtually every weapon.”


“We’re modernizing and creating a brand-new nuclear force and frankly we have to do it because others are doing it. If they stop, we’ll stop. But they’re not stopping so if they’re not going to stop, we’re going to be so far ahead of everybody else. And nuclear like you’ve never seen before. And I hope they stop. If they do, we’ll stop in two minutes.” (RELATED: Poll: Trump Gets Best Approval Rating In 7 Months)

“Frankly, I’d like to get rid of a lot of them. If they want to do that, we’ll go along with them. We won’t lead the way, but we’ll go along with them. We’ll have a nuclear force that will be absolutely modernized and brand-new.” (RELATED: WATCH: Trump Mocks The ‘Fake News Media’ During Speech — And They Just Have To Sit There And Take It)

“Hopefully we’ll never have to use it and hopefully we could reduce it in the years ahead and that depends really on what other people are going to be doing. But we’ll always be number one in that category, certainly as long as I’m president. We’re going to be far in excess than anybody else,” he said.
