Obama Boasted the US Could Destroy North Korea — FLASHBACK

Trump issued a presidential memorandum on January 27 that, among other things, directed the secretary of defense to initiate a Nuclear Posture Review "to ensure that the United States nuclear deterrent is modern, robust, flexible, resilient, ready, and appropriately tailored to deter 21st-century threats and reassure our allies".

"I would like to de-nuke the world". 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.

"One of the things that we have been doing is spending a lot more time positioning our missile defense systems, so that even as we try to resolve the underlying problem of nuclear development inside of North Korea, we're also setting up a shield that can at least block the relatively low-level threats that they're posing right now", Mr. Obama said. The first order I gave to my generals, as you know, my first order was I want this, our nuclear arsenal, to be the biggest and the finest in the world. "Until other nations disarm, the United States will remain the world's top nuclear power", Trump said during his Thursday press conference in bedminster, New Jersey.
