Former President Donald Trump stated on Monday that nuclear war is currently the biggest threat to the United States.
Trump made the remark during an interview with radio presenter Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo, who afterwards uploaded a video of the incident to Rumble. Pags and Trump had just completed discussing the havoc leftist groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter wreaked in Portland, Seattle, and other places, as well as the failure of Democratic leaders to denounce the riots.
“It’s actually a very, very — it’s a dangerous time in our country, not only for what’s happening inside with our crooked politicians, but very dangerous when they’re mentioning nuclear weapons on the outside,” Trump told Pags. “And we don’t have the people that know. We do not have the people that know how to handle it, or know what’s going on.”
In recent months, the risk of nuclear conflict has substantially increased. Russia “temporarily” blocked U.S. inspections of nuclear weapons installations and vowed to protect recently seized Ukrainian land with nuclear weapons, while North Korea declared itself a nuclear power. In August, the United States conducted a regular test of an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile to demonstrate its nuclear war readiness.
“The nuclear thing is the biggest threat,” Trump said. Here you may view his entire interview:
