Tweets regarding nuclear threat are frightening

By Staff | Jan 10, 2018

To the editor:

In light of the President’s recent alarming tweets, directed at an unstable dictator, about the size of the USA’s nuclear arsenal, I support the idea of Congress passing a law ASAP to prohibit a proactive nuclear strike without the approval of Congress.

I was raised in an era where we feared a nuclear war every day. We huddled under our desks, pulled off the road and ducked when the civil defense sirens went off, we added bomb shelters and practiced escape plans.

This NOT how I want to live now.

Mr. Trump’s frightening tweeted rhetoric needs to be constrained by some practical legislation putting a check on what he can and cannot do.
