Trump wants China, North Korea and Iran to destroy their nuclear weapons. Then Trump could on a whim, level them with nukes, and they would have no retaliation as deterrence. Why would they do such a thing? What’s in it for them? Trump is so self centered he believes others should act for his benefit, for their detriment without any incentive.
Further in his 2003 SOTU (State Of The Union) speech, Bush promised to annihilate the axis of evil consisting of Iraq, Iran and North Korea. Iraq had no nuclear deterrent. The USA leveled it and took their oil. Iran and North Korea were close to having nukes. The USA backed off. Obviously, nukes are useful for survival. As far as Iran and North Korea are concerned, those promises to annihilate are still outstanding.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
