Democracy Now! — Friday, Dec. 23, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump raised the prospect of a new global arms race on Thursday, after he suggested on Twitter he would increase the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Trump’s tweet read, “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.” Trump’s tweet came on the same day Russian President Vladimir Putin said his country needed to “strengthen the military potential of strategic nuclear forces.” This morning, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski said Trump told her today, “Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.”
