Trump Says U.S. Nuclear Arsenal Must Be ‘Greatly’ Expanded; Uranium Stocks Soar

"The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to it senses regarding nukes," Trump said in a Twitter post.

Global X Uranium ETF rose to a session high after Trump’s comments while Uranium Resources Inc., a Colorado-based mining company, climbed as much as 27 percent.

Trump met Wednesday with executives from both Lockheed Martin and Boeing in Florida, along with a bevy of top Pentagon officials, to discuss military spending.

“We’re trying to get costs down, costs,” Trump told reporters in brief remarks outside the resort after the officers departed.

NOTE WELL: He did not indicate at all that he wants to cut military spending. It's more llike he wants to negotiate "good deals" on expanded military spending.



  1. um, that Twitter post makes no sense. Trump deserves to be destroyed by the left over that. Unfortunately the sky has been falling 24x7 for about a year now and nobody is listening.

  2. Hey you never know when we might need to destroy the world ten times over instead of five...

  3. It's about time we got rid of the moon!
