Trump and the Bomb: Nuclear Risks and Opportunities for the New President

While President Trump’s unpredictability and temperament create real concerns as he assumes control of the US nuclear arsenal, Joe Cirincione also sees chances for the new president to make positive breakthroughs. In line with his desire for close relations with Russia, President Trump could agree with Vladimir Putin to deep cuts in US and Russian nuclear arms. He could enter into talks with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un to cap that country’s nuclear program. Or he might recognize that the Iran nuclear deal is in American security interests and work to strengthen it, not dismantle it. The dangers are real and the stakes are high, but opportunities exist to make the world a safer place.

Joseph Cirincione is president of Ploughshares Fund, a global security foundation, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Previously, he served as vice president for national security and international policy at the Center for American Progress, served as director for non-proliferation at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and served on the International Security Advisory Board for Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. Cirincione has written several books on nuclear security and his commentary appears frequently in broadcast and print media.
