donald trump and the nuclear button
That 3 a.m. Call and the Nuclear Trigger

A foreign leader who gets a false report of an American nuclear attack will have minutes to decide: “Could President Trump possibly have done that?” I have repeatedly asked myself the same question, only to conclude, incredulously, that the answer is yes. What foreign leader will bet his or her country’s fate on the answer being no?


original letter:

Re: "Only Hillary Clinton Is Prepared for the Nuclear Threat" (Oct 24)

A foreign leader who gets a false report of an American nuclear attack will have minutes to decide, "Could Donald Trump possibly have done that?" We have repeatedly asked ourselves the same question, only learn, incredulously, that the answer is "yes".

What foreign leader will bet his or her country's fate on the answer being "no"? Electing Donald Trump will raise the risk of nuclear confrontation.
