3 Good Reasons to Worry About Trump Having the Nuclear Codes @alternet:
"But throughout the election campaign, Trump came across as irrational, hypersensitive and prone to threatening those with whom he disagrees or disapproves. He revealed his inconsistent beliefs and false claims about basic truths, and willingness to change these beliefs for votes on a whim. Of course, whether it is under President Obama or President Trump, the U.S. is capable of launching, within minutes, a nuclear attack that could threaten the extinction of human life on Earth. But with Trump, it is nearly impossible to separate empty braggadocio from genuine intention. That means we must take special precautions; Trump has done nothing so far to dispel fears he will apply his reckless brand of decision-making to nuclear weapons."
