White House And The Pentagon Condemn NBC's Report That President Trump Wanted To Increase America's Nuclear Arsenal Ten-Fold

The Hill: Pentagon chief pushes back at 'irresponsible' NBC story

Defense Secretary James Mattis on Wednesday rejected the NBC News report that President Trump wanted to greatly expand the United States's nuclear arsenal, calling the story "irresponsible."

"Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false. This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible,” Mattis said in a statement.

NBC reported Wednesday that during a July 20 meeting of top military officials, Trump suggested dramatically expanding the country's nuclear capabilities — from roughly 4,000 to 32,000 — after seeing data that showed the U.S. weapons stockpile decreasing since the late 1960s.
