Black activists’ words echo from the past as Trump threatens nuclear war with North Korea

In this week's fact-checking video, CNN's Jake Tapper and FactCheck.org review the accuracy of President Donald Trump's tweet about the modernization of the US nuclear weapons program. The country has far exceeded USA expectations and has successfully produced a miniaturized warhead that can fit inside its missiles.

Mr Trump's claims about the nuclear arsenal came after North Korea said it was considering plans for a missile strike on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

Trump, who is in the middle of a 17-day working vacation at his private golf club in Bedminster, N.J., has not commented on any of the tweets himself.

Trump, who has threatened "fire and fury" if North Korea continues its provocations, returned to the subject of Obama on Thursday morning, retweeting a survey by ProgressPolls, which asked: "Who is a better President of the United States?"

He echoed his tough stance against North Korea in a series of tweets August 9, according to The Hill.

"Today (Wednesday) over Twitter, Trump revealed that his first order as president had been to upgrade the US" nuclear arsenal, yet added that he hopes it will never be needed. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before. "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!'"

There is an ongoing modernization of the US nuclear weapons program, but it was initiated under President Barack Obama, not Trump.

Trump's unprecedented warning against North Korea came last night, a short while after The Washington Post's initial report yesterday that North Korea has successfully built miniaturized nuclear warheads for its ICBMs.
