US President Donald Trump on Wednesday (Oct 11) denied a report from NBC News that he told his national security advisers in July he wanted to increase the country's nuclear arsenal by almost tenfold, saying he argued for its modernisation.
Citing "three officials who were in the room", NBC reports Trump indicated during the meeting that he wants to expand America's arsenal of nuclear weapons to about 32,000 - a huge increase from the current stockpile of about 4,000. During his speech before the United Nations General Assembly last month, Trump made no distinction between the King Jong-un regime and the North Korea people and said his administration is willing to "totally destroy North Korea". "That was just fake news by NBC, which gives a lot of fake news lately", Trump said when asked about the article during a press conference. Mr. Trump tweeted. "Bad for country!"
