Scarborough: Trump asked advisor why US can’t use nuclear weapons
Donald Trump asked a foreign policy adviser multiple times in an hour-long briefing why the U.S. can’t use its nuclear weapons, MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough said Wednesday morning.
Scarborough revealed the story while he was interviewing former CIA Director Michael Hayden on “Morning Joe” about Trump’s campaign.
“Several months ago, a foreign policy expert went to advise Donald Trump,” Scarborough said. “And three times he asked about the use of nuclear weapons — three times he asked. At one point, ‘If we have them, why can’t we use them?’ ”
“That’s one of the reasons why he doesn’t have foreign policy experts around him,” Scarborough added.
