The US President Donald trump has promised to expand the nuclear Arsenal of the country. He stated this in an interview with Reuters.
According to the American leader, the United States has lagged behind in this matter, and he intends to ensure that the United States was “on top”.

On 9 February, Reuters, citing sources in Washington reported that on January 28 trump during his first telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin criticized the Treaty on the reduction of strategic offensive arms (start-3), calling it a bad agreement to the United States.
