President Trump in the last two years has never missed an opportunity to tout his $700 and $716 billion budgets to rebuild the 'depleted' U.S. military. He also has vowed to rebuild America's nuclear arsenal by adding new low-yield weapons. He further has announced his intention to abandon a landmark Cold-War era arms control treaty with the Russians. Now, in a single tweet, the president has signaled he’s rethinking the whole idea of winning an arms race by outspending and outlasting America’s adversaries.
Iran said Sunday that it would continue to develop its missile program after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused the Islamic state of testing a medium-range ballistic missile capable of 'carrying multiple warheads,' which he said could strike 'anywhere' in the Middle East and even parts of Europe.
