Your entire second paragraph contradicts the premise of the first.
“Just this past week, CQ Roll Call reported that a blue-ribbon Pentagon panel urged the Trump administration to make the U.S. arsenal more capable of fighting a “‘limited’ atomic war.””
“What most people haven’t realized yet is that his vision of turning back the clock also applies to America’s nuclear arsenal.”
Ok, so it’s not his vision, it’s the vision of the Pentagon panel. They’re trying to push their vision on him.
