Donald Trump Will Drop The Bomb – 3 Reasons Why

 By Jason Simpkins

I'm calling it now.
And he could do it sooner than you might want to believe.
If you think I’m paranoid, I hope you’re right.
I hope I’m wrong.
But when I look at what’s going on around the world, and when I look at the kind of person Donald Trump is, it just seems obvious to me that we’re heading for something big.
So please allow me to make the following case…

Point #1: Donald Trump Already Said He’d Do It… Repeatedly

Donald Trump has been talking about using nuclear weapons for more than two years.
The first reference I could find was a conversation he had with Chris Matthews in March 2015.
“Somebody hits us within ISIS — you wouldn’t fight back with a nuke?” Trump asked. “Why are we making them? Why do we make them?”
“Look, nuclear should be off the table,” he added. “But would there be a time when it could be used, possibly, possibly?”
Trump expanded on his position the very next day, in an interview with Fox News, saying he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of using nukes in Europe.
“Europe is a big place,” Trump said. “I’m not going to take cards off the table. We have nuclear capability… The thought of it is horrible. But I don’t want to take anything off the table.”
Furthermore, Donald Trump reportedly asked a foreign policy expert on his transition team: “If we have them, why can’t we use them?
He didn’t just ask the question once, either. He asked it three times.
Again, this is similar to Trump’s question to Chris Matthews, which was “Why do we make them?”
Presumably to use them, I suppose.
Trump has also repeatedly expressed his desire to expand our nuclear arsenal and capabilities.
In addition to numerous public comments, he tweeted this back in December:

  1. Will Trump drop an atomic bomb? A good question to ask Scott Adams.
