US President Donald Trump says he wants to expand America’s nuclear arsenal to ensure it is at the "top of the pack,"

Democracy and Class Struggle severely criticized the  Russian honeymoon with Trump and the illusions that spread throughout the world - we were always concerned these illusions would lead to a violent abusive separation.

This Trump  intervention on nuclear weapons makes us reluctantly more correct than we wish we were. 

US President Donald Trump says he wants to expand America’s nuclear arsenal to ensure it is at the "top of the pack," saying the US had fallen behind in its nuclear weapons capacity.

In an interview with Reuters on Thursday, Trump also said he is against a "one-sided" new agreement with Russia that would limit the deployment of nuclear warheads.

The new president also complained about Moscow’s deployment of a cruise missile in violation of an arms control treaty and said he would raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin when and if they meet.

Speaking from behind his desk in the Oval Office at the White House, Trump also declared himself "very angry" at North Korea's ballistic missile tests and said China could solve the threat posed by North Korea "very easily if they want to."

Trump has told Putin he does not want to renew a 2010 nuclear arms reduction treaty between Washington and Moscow because the deal was bad for the United States.

During his first call as president with Putin on January 28, Trump said the New START treaty favored Russia, Reuters reported earlier this month, citing current and former US officials with knowledge of the call.

New START gives both countries until February 2018 to reduce their deployed strategic nuclear warheads to 1,550, the lowest level in decades. However, it does not limit the number of operationally inactive nuclear warheads that remain in the high thousands in both the US and Russian stockpiles.

Democracy and Class Struggle is an observer of the internecine capitalist conflict in the United States and neither Trump or the Deep State are democratic options for the American People - the American People's still have to find a new politics of liberation.

A  new politics of resistance was on display at Standing Rock where the knife was being sharpened in the protracted people's war to overthrow US Imperialism in its heartlands.

It is a long 35 Days into the Trump Presidency - Keith Oblermann already sees the process of Trump's demise and puts a good case of how it will unfold with the ice berg being revealed a little bit at a time.

Standing Rock - The Arrests Begin

Hundreds of police in riot gear and carrying night sticks are clearing the final Dakota Access Pipeline protesters, who remained on federal land in violation of orders by the governor to vacate the area by 4:00pm local time. Protesters consider the land to be indigenous property, Standing Rock, under treaty.

Enforcements included units from the Wisconsin State Troopers and Morton County officers, according to Unicorn Riot, an independent media collective. The collective also reported seeing a National Lawyers Guild observer being arrested.

Police regrouped following several arrests, returning to formation opposite protesters on the road. Remaining protesters anticipated them rushing at any moment.

Several minutes later, the police backtracked their position, leaving room open possibly for more back up or vehicles to arrive. With little sunlight left, and an announced clean-up scheduled for Thursday morning, it is unclear what their next move will be.

As police backed up, a small group of military veterans aligned with the protesters advanced their own line, keeping a distance of many yards.

A Facebook page called Inspire Bank Exits carried a livestream.
