We have no idea why he would use twitter to be so reckless with a serious subject, but the man seems to be a complete fool and has no idea what he’s doing. We are still investigating why any sane person would do this in this position.
We are waiting further comments from Trump who hasn’t had a press conference in months.
Coincidentally Putin had also issued a statement:
Russia should fortify its military nuclear potential and develop missiles that can penetrate any missile-defence system, the country’s President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. He also called for the balanced development of all branches of the armed forces, precision weapons, modern means of communication and inspection as well as electronic warfare systems.
“We need to strengthen the strategic nuclear forces, for that we should develop missiles capable of penetrating any current and prospective missile defence systems,” Putin said at a defence ministry meeting, according to Tass news agency.
“We must carefully monitor any changes in the balance of power and in the political-military situation in the world, especially along Russian borders, and quickly adapt plans for neutralizing threats to our country,” the president said.
