Trump warns nuclear war threat is worse than ever

According to the Washington Examiner:

Former President Donald Trump said he believes the United States is now facing an unprecedented threat of nuclear war . . .

“Our country has probably never been worse than it is right now. I think we’re in the greatest danger ever of a nuclear war,” Trump said on Outside the Beltway.

At the moment, the U.S. and many other Western nations have rallied behind Ukraine as its forces try to fend off an invasion by Russia, leading to renewed apprehension about nuclear strikes of some variety. For instance, former Joint Chiefs Chairman and retired Adm. Mike Mullen warned over the weekend that the U.S. should prepare for the “possibility” of Russia using a nuclear weapon. There is also the Biden White House having to perform cleanup duty after the sitting president said the U.S. military would defend Taiwan if China invaded.
