Democrats introduce bill to curb Trump’s ability to launch a nuclear strike

Rep. Ted W. Lieu and Sen. Edward J. Markey, both Democrats, introduced legislation on Tuesday that would forbid the president from launching a nuclear strike without first having Congress declare war.

The bill expresses clear doubts in President Donald Trump’s judgment, with the lawmakers saying in a joint release “the crucial issue of nuclear ‘first use’ is more urgent than ever now that President Donald Trump has the power to launch a nuclear war at a moment’s notice.”

    Only one or more stupid, clueless Commucrats could come up with something as ignorant as this. Wow….you think you can get Congress to meet, get briefed, vote on a declaration and inform the President so that he can transmit the codes to launch a counterstrike in the approximate 10 minutes or less it would take an SLBM to hit DC? Not F’ing likely!

    Sounds to me like these guys are doing Russia or China a really big favor in that regard. Maybe THEY should be investigated.

  2. I wonder if Hillary had won the election, would these same idiots propose this same bill. Trump isn’t worried about a war. He is more focused on the restoration of this country which has been severely weakened by the previous administrations.

  3. The one event that requires lightning fast response in minutes, all out nuclear war, and we should trust it to the group of people who take the longest to do ANYTHING.

    Sounds smart…
