Top US Nuclear Commander: “I wouldn’t carry out ‘illegal’ nuclear strike order from Trump”

“I think some people think we’re stupid. We’re not stupid people. We think about these things a lot. When you have this responsibility, how do you not think about it?”

On Saturday (November 18 2017), the top US nuclear commander said that he would resist President Donald Trump if he ordered an “illegal” launch of nuclear weapons.

“I provide advice to the president, he will tell me what to do.”

“And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I’m going to say, ’Mr President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ’What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up with options, of a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.”

“If you execute an unlawful order, you will go to jail. You could go to jail for the rest of your life.”

Some senators want legislation to alter the nuclear authority of the US president. Last week, a Senate committee held the first congressional hearing in more than four decades on the president’s authority to launch a nuclear strike.
