Donald Trump: I have a 'much bigger' nuclear button than Kim Jong Un

Trump: I have a 'much bigger' button than Kim Jong Un (The Hill link): President Trump on Tuesday said that the nuclear launch button on his desk is "much bigger" and "more powerful" than that of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un – and that his nuclear button actually "works."

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times,'" Trump tweeted. "Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

Trump taunts North Korea: My nuclear button is 'much bigger,' 'more powerful' (CNN link): President Donald Trump on Tuesday taunted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, warning Kim about US nuclear capabilities as tensions worsen between the two nations.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!" Trump tweeted.

The evening message followed more than a dozen others Trump had sent throughout the day on issues ranging from The New York Times' coverage of his administration to conflict in the Middle East.

 


Twitter says Trump's taunting North Korea with a 'nuclear button' does not violate its terms of service (Business Insider link): Twitter said that President Donald Trump's latest provocative tweets toward the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un do not violate its terms of service.

The social-media platform was responding to complaints and inquiries on Tuesday night following Trump's tweets in which he claimed he had a "nuclear button" that is "bigger and more powerful" than Kim Jong Un's.

Trump was responding to claims the North Korean leader made on New Year's Day, in which Kim said, "The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk. This is reality, not a threat."

The president's tweets caused some alarm and prompted some Twitter users to make a show of reporting the tweets directly to Twitter and its CEO, Jack Dorsey. A Twitter spokesperson said in a statement Tuesday night that Trump's North Korea tweets do not amount to a "specific threat," and thus do not warrant disciplinary action.

The spokesperson pointed to Twitter's policy on violent threats and glorification of violence: "You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people," the rule states.

It is not the first time the question has been raised about whether Trump's Twitter account should be — or can be — suspended. As noted by Business Insider's Steve Kovach last month, Twitter's new abuse policy seemingly exempts Trump from punishment on the platform.

The rule states: "This policy does not apply to military or government entities and we will consider exceptions for groups that are currently engaging in (or have engaged in) peaceful resolution."

But that explanation apparently did not stop people from taking their gripes directly to Twitter. Images surfaced late Tuesday night appearing to show the text, "Ban @realDonaldTrump," and "@jack is #complicit" projected onto the facade of Twitter's headquarters in San Francisco.

    Bannon: 2016 Trump Tower meeting was 'treasonous'
    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon called the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer purportedly offering damaging information about Hillary Clinton "treasonous," according to a new book obtained by The Guardian.

    The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, is based on hundreds of interviews, including ones with President Donald Trump and his inner circle. According to the Guardian, Bannon addressed the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian operatives that was arranged when Trump Jr. agreed to meet a "Russian government attorney" after receiving an email offering him "very high level and sensitive information" that would "incriminate" Clinton.

    "The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor -- with no lawyers. They didn't have any lawyers," Bannon continued, according to the Guardian. "Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately."

    Bannon also reportedly told Wolff: "They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV."

  10. Trump has not developed emotionally since he was a teenage boy when his parents sent him to military school.

    Isn’t military school the place parents often send uncontrollable teens to straighten them out?

    Why did Trump’s parents send him to military school rather than to an elite East Coast private high school or boarding school? What was happening in Jamaica Estates to cause his parents to take such a drastic step?

    Has the media looked into this?

    2. Does anyone doubt that some prominent Republicans are being blackmailed? If you have dirt on someone you can do one of two things with it. Make it public to hurt someone, or hold onto it to control someone. The Russians hacked Democrats AND Republicans. They made public what they found on the Dems. They're holding what they got from the Repubs. What do you think they're doing with the dirt they have?

    3. Bannon has read the writing on the wall, and I think some people are missing the point this morning. We cannot afford to do that. My take is Bannon now believes that Trump is going to get his insane ass booted out of the White House for treason. Along with his hideous family and some equally compromised GOP crud in the Senate and House. That part of this is now over.

      Once that has happened I believe Bannon sees himself picking up the fallen pieces and taking Trump's place as they leader of the American far right. This is pure apocalyptic politics. Recognize it for what it is.

    Didn’t Don the Con Sr. admit that he helped Jr write lies to explain the meeting? Would this be considered being an accessory after the fact?

The White House was prepared for the Wolff book to be bad for them — and sources there have told me he spent a ton of time in the building visiting with Bannon — but they weren’t prepared for Bannon doing this.”

    “Bannon touched the third rail of Trumpworld — going after the president’s blood family.”
