Bernie Sanders Wakes America Up By Warning That Trump Is Talking About Nuclear War With N. Korea

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is sounding the alarm that Donald Trump could be taking the United States into a nuclear war with North Korea.

Video of Sen. Sanders on CBS This Morning:

Sanders said, “When you’re talking about a ‘major, major conflict,’ what you’re talking about is a nuclear war. Obviously, I think the goal now is to work as strongly as we can with China. China is, I think, receives about 80 percent of the exports from North Korea. They are in a position to tighten the screws on North Korea and tell them they cannot continue their missile program or their nuclear program.”

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump demonstrated an infatuation with using nuclear weapons. As a candidate, Trump refused to take using nuclear weapons off of the table. Experts are warning that a preemptive strike on N. Korea would provoke a catastrophic response.

Just as voters should have paid attention to Trump’s pro-nuclear weapons rhetoric during the campaign the American people should be paying close attention to Trump’s threat of a major, major conflict.

Bernie Sanders is trying to wake people up. There have been protests nearly every weekend since Donald Trump took office, but an urgent issue that has yet to be protested is the real potential for war in North Korea.
