On Friday, “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC claims President-elect Donald Trump told her in private that he’s fine with a nuclear arms race developing in contemporary times. She also says that Trump is confident that the U.S. can “outlast” any other country if a race occurred.
Brzezinski apparently was inquiring more clarification about Trump’s tweet from Thursday, in which the president-elect said that the U.S. should “strengthen and expand” its nuclear capabilities, according to co-host Joe Scarborough.
“Let it be an arms race, we will outmatch them at every pass … and outlast them all,” Brzezinski recounted Trump saying. Despite Brzezinski’s claims, Trump transition team officials have not commented nor responded to the report.

The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes
