Trump and nuclear First Use
John Noonan
654

Richard Nixon went by the Madman Theory, wanting the North Vietnamese and Russians to think he was crazy enough to use nukes. But that was a deterrent - and it never drove the Vietnamese to the peace table, although it was a theory worth a trial run as there was no real danger. If Trump really is so unstable as to have nukes on the table, God help us.
