Trump talks nuclear weapons

Donald Trump shook up long-standing international security norms Friday by reportedly suggesting a renewed arms race, a day after he tweeted that the United States should "greatly strengthen and expand" its nuclear weapons capability.

​In the far southwest corner of the West Wing of the White House is an oval office, the center of our nation’s moral authority that has beamed a light of hope and resolution to the rest of the world.

​Sitting in that office today is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound mound of self-idolizing ego at whose center, where a moral core ought to be, is a hollow void.
