Yes, Trump Has The Power To Launch A Nuclear Attack On His Own

There's no veto once the president has ordered a strike.

Demand Grows to Strip Trump of Nuclear Authority

As he continues with his talk about fire and fury and the total destruction of North Korea, is it time to take the power to use nuclear weapons away from Donald Trump?

Donald Trump isn't backing down from his threat to rain fire and fury down
on North Korea.

At a press conference yesterday in Bedminster, New Jersey, he told
reporters that this threat was real - and not "a dare".

"He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody
has seen before, what will happen in North Korea. You'll see. You'll see.
And he'll see. He will see. It's not a dare. It's a statement."

Thanks to California Congressman Ted Lieu and Massachusetts Senator Ed
Markey, there is legislation in the House and the Senate right now that
would ban any president - including this one - from using nuclear weapons
without a declaration of war from Congress. Seems pretty reasonable right
now, doesn't it?

"Do reckless comments of @realDonaldTrump scare you? Support HR 669 by
@SenMarkey & me. Requires approval of Congress for nuclear 1st strike." -
Ted Lieu

Lawmakers Move To Strip Unstable Trump Of Access To Nuclear Codes

Fearing that the President is becoming increasingly unstable and unpredictable, lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are renewing their efforts to strip Donald Trump of his ability to launch a nuclear attack without the approval of Congress. Considering the destructive potential of these weapons, it makes you wonder why we haven’t done this sooner.

Trump: N. Korea Made ‘Very Wise and Well-Reasoned’ Choice'
As other nations encourage diplomatic solutions.

President Trump on Wednesday tweeted in apparent approval of North Korea’s latest move to back off of its threat against Guam, writing, “Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision. The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!” The news comes just days after North Korean leader Kim said he decided not to launch an attack on Guam—but warned he could always change his mind. Also on Wednesday, China urged North Korea and the United States to “hit the brakes” on their threats against one another. “The most important task at hand is for the U.S. and North Korea to ‘hit the brakes’ on their mutual needling of each other with words and actions, to lower the temperature of the tense situation and prevent the emergence of an ‘August crisis,’” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday. Wang, on a phone call with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, noted that Russia and China should work together to lessen tensions so that no one is able to “stir up an incident on their doorstep.”
