Press release on the appointment of John Bolton as National Security Advisor
In December 2016, President Donald Trump tweeted that the United States “must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability,” prompting condemnation in the United States and around the world. Those concerns, it turns out, were well justified.
The Arms Control Association will host a briefing with a group of top experts to analyze the implications of the new Trump nuclear strategy.
The Nuclear Posture Review will include whether to maintain the long-standing goal of a world without nuclear weapons.
Trump has failed to articulate a coherent strategy.
Statement by Kingston Reif and Daryl Kimball
Asian states Pakistan, India, China, and North Korea comprise four of the world's nine nuclear-armed states. The interconnections of these countries must be considered to fully understand how nuclear nonproliferation can be influenced.
A U.S. no-nuclear-first-use policy would reduce the risk of nuclear catastrophe, improve the prospects for further Russian nuclear cuts, and draw China into the nuclear risk reduction process.
