The American leader expressed the hope that the United States will never have to use this type of weapon.
US President Donald Trump is convinced that the United States is significantly ahead of the PRC in the field of nuclear weapons. He stated this on Monday, September 7, during a briefing at the White House.
вЂњWe are very lucky that I have been building up our nuclear weapons, because otherwise, China would have surpassed us,вЂќ the American leader said.
At the same time, he stressed that it would be better never to use this type of weapon.
вЂњWe have modernized our nuclear weapons. I hope we never have to use them,вЂќ Trump added.
Recall that in the annual report on China's military power, the Pentagon acknowledged that the Chinese military bypassed the US Armed Forces in shipbuilding, the production of ground-based ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and integrated air defense systems.
