Trump confirms U.S. to abandon nuclear arms treaty with Russia


(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump on Saturday said the United States will pull out of a decades-long nuclear deal signed between Washington and Moscow during the Cold War.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, signed between former President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, bans all land-based cruise missiles with a range between 310 and 3,417 miles.

"Russia has violated the agreement. They've been violating it for many years and I don't know why President Obama didn't negotiate or pull out. We're not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to," Trump said. "We're the ones that have stayed in the agreement and we've honored the agreement but Russian has not, unfortunately .... so were going to terminate the agreement." [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]

  1. But, I thought that Putin and Trump were buddies! I thought they all said Putin "owned" Trump because he helped rig the election for Trump. Is this anyway to treat someone that "owns" you, Mr President?

  2. If President Trump pull out of a decade long nuclear deal is it not going to cause war again between the two country ?
