Trump Is Unconcerned If US Finds Itself In ‘Arms Race’

President-elect Donald Trump has been blasted over his recent tweet on nuclear weapons, and he’s taken a similar approach to dealing with this controversy as he has to others in the past. As Newsmax reports, Trump is doubling down.

Trump’s unsolicited tweet has been roundly criticized, and exactly what he meant has been endlessly analyzed.

“The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes,” the tweet read.

Newly named press secretary Sean Spicer attempted to provide some clarity.

"The point that he was making is very clear. Other countries, whether Russia, or others that want to threaten U.S. safety, we are not going to sit back and allow this country to not act," Spicer said.

Spicer was a guest on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ and the president-elect just happened to call to speak with him off the air. The network’s Mika Brzezinski ended up spending a few minutes speaking with him, and she relayed what Trump had to say when she asked for some clarification on the nukes tweet.

"Let it be an arms race," Trump said, "We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all."
