Administration is wrong on nuclear weapons and Clinton, Trump are silent

(CNN) The growing threat of nuclear war has actually gotten little attention in the election project beyond some reasonable stress and anxiety at the idea of Donald Trump‘s finger on the nuclear button. The United States deals with a basic choice about nuclear weapons, the Obama administration is making the incorrect option and neither prospect has actually spoken out versus this wrongheaded policy.

At the United Nations recently, 123 countries voted to start settlements next year on a brand-new treaty to restrict the ownership of nuclear weapons. Regardless of President Obama’s motivating 2009 promise to look for the security of a world devoid of nuclear weapons, the United States voted “no” and led the opposition to this treaty.
