WATCH: Foreign Policy Expert: Trump Is BAFFLED About Nukes, ‘If We Have Them, Why Not Use Them’

As if Republican nominee Donald Trump isn’t frightening enough, he just said something scarier. After the Republican convention, Trump started receiving classified intelligence briefings. On the same day as his first one, he leaked potentially classified information at a campaign rally.

Now, we found about about some questions he asked of his advisers. Joe Scarborough of MSNBC talked about an incident from a few months ago. He said this about The Donald:

“Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times [Trump] asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can’t we use them.”

Scarborough was interviewing Michael Hayden, former NSA and CIA chief, when he made this comment. Joe then asked Hayden about the hypothetical scenario of Donald Trump asking for a nuclear bomb to be dropped. Hayden said:

“It’s scenario dependent, but the system is designed for speed and decisiveness. It’s not designed to debate the decision.”

Trump’s erratic behavior lately would cause major problems if he were POTUS. He changes his mind on things daily and he makes impulse decisions. We don’t need someone like that handling (or starting) a war.

Many legal experts are saying that Trump would be a threat to national security. He’s already asked Russia to hack our email systems. His patriotism needs to be questioned.

Joe Noonan, a national security expert who worked with Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney, said this about Trump’s eagerness to use nuclear weapons.

He gave several tweets on the subject:

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons noted this about nuclear weapons:

“Nuclear weapons are unique in their destructive power and the threat they pose to the environment and human survival. They release vast amounts of energy in the form of blast, heat, and radiation. No adequate humanitarian response is possible. In addition to causing tens of millions of immediate deaths, a regional nuclear war involving around 100 Hiroshima-sized weapons would disrupt the global climate and agricultural production so severely that more than a billion people would be at risk of famine.”

A potential president should not be excited about using these weapons. No one should actually want to use them. They should never be used again.
