Donald Trump Would Consider Nuclear Weapons On ISIS

On April 28, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said he would not rule out using nuclear weapons on ISIS. He explained:

"I don’t want to rule out anything. I will be the last to use nuclear weapons. It's a horror to use nuclear weapons. The power of weaponry today is the single greatest problem that our world has, and it’s not global warming like our president said, it’s the power of weapons, in particular, nuclear. I will be the last to use it. I will not be a happy trigger like some people might be, but I will never, ever rule it out."

According to The Hill, Trump has made a similar statement regarding the use of nuclear weapons in Europe. In addition, he has suggested giving nuclear weapons to Japan and South Korea due to North Korea's nuclear capability--this would violate U.S. non-proliferation policies.

NBC "TODAY" show host Matt Lauer implied that Trump's unpredictability might be a cover for his lack of critical details. Trump responded, "I have a total grasp of the details — far greater than just about anybody else, that I can tell you. When I said 'take the oil' — and [I’d] been saying it for a long time — I didn’t want to tell that, but yourselves and everybody else was saying, 'Tell us what it is, tell us what it is.' And after three months, I said, 'Take the oil.’"

Trump added, "Now, I would have preferred not doing that, but politically I really had to because it got to a point where people just had to know. I would have preferred not saying, 'Take the oil,' and when you go in, you surprise [them]. Now [they've] fortified oil reserves and they’ve prepared. And we’ll still take the oil, and we should be taking the oil, and we’re not."
