Scott talks to Colleen Moore about America’s withdrawal from global nuclear arms agreements under the Trump administration. Part of the reason for Trump’s keenness on pulling out of these agreements is his reputation as a tough negotiator who prioritizes America’s interest and won’t tolerate “bad deals,” but he’s also received nonstop allegations from the left for four years that he’s a Russian puppet, which makes it very difficult to try to make peace with them. Luckily, nuclear arms reduction is an issue that 80% of Americans support, so Scott and Moore see a huge opportunity for politicians to make this a leading issue in the future.
Discussed on the show:
- “Nuclear Arms Nightmare: Don’t Let New START Die” (The National Interest)
- Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety
- “Command and Control (2016)” (IMDb)
