Has the US Improved Its Nuclear Arsenal Under Trump? Fact-checking His Twitter Claims

"North Korea poses a serious threat to the US and all options should be on the table to protect the American people", Nelson said.

US President Donald Trump says the country's nuclear arsenal is now more powerful than before.

"And President Trump is not helping the situation with his bombastic comments".

Welcome to Friday, where we've entered what feels like round 57 of "Is THIS finally what gets Twitter to ban Trump?".

Mr. Trump's "first order" refers to a January 27 presidential memorandum ordering a new Nuclear Posture Review, characterized by the Pentagon as "legislatively mandated" and the basis of nuclear policy.

However, his recent tweet about North Korea rubbed some users the wrong way, and they reported his account for threatening violence. "He will ask, 'Did Obama approve this?' And if the answer is affirmative, he will say: 'We don't'".

With over 35 million followers on the micro-blogging site, Mr Trump is one of the most active politicians on Twitter.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States". Lindsey Graham, a Republican on the Armed Services Committee, told CBS' "This Morning" that Trump had "basically drawn a red line" by saying Pyongyang can't ever have a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking the U.S.
