DANGEROUS: Look At What Vladimir Putin Just Did Under Trump’s Watch

According to a report by the New York Times, Russia violated the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with the United Sates after they deployed a cruise missile.

The news comes after the scandal of Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who came in contact with Russia’s ambassador to the US to talk about removing the sanctions that Obama had placed prior to leaving the presidency.

Trump had also just dismissed a separate arms treaty with Russia, calling it a bad deal for the United States. While wanting to “greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability.”

According to the New York Times, American officials referred to the missile as the SSC-X-8. But the X has been dropped which leads the officials to believe it’s out of the development phase and operational.

This could mean big trouble for U.S. forces and their NATO allies.

This will also bring challenges to the Trump administration, which has already come under fire for wanting to improve relations with Moscow.

According to the Times “Trump has said the United States should “strengthen and expand its nuclear capability.” But at the same time, he has talked of reaching a new arms agreement with Moscow that would reduce arms ‘very substantially.'”
