Paul: Trump has no clue what the nuclear triad is (The Hill)

Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday accused front-runner Donald Trump of having “no clue” about the nation’s nuclear delivery capability.

“This is the worrisome thing, during the debate absolutely Donald Trump had no clue what the nuclear triad is,” Paul said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” referring to the strategic bombers, intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched missiles capable of delivering nuclear payloads.

“Now that they’ve discovered what it is, they’re ready to use it?” the senator added, in reference to Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson’s recent statement that Trump would not be afraid to use nuclear weapons as president.
