Pelosi asks military about limiting Trump nuke access

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Friday she has spoken with top military brass about limiting outgoing US President Donald Trump's access to the nation's nuclear codes.

"This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable President from initiating military hostilities or accessing launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike," the top Democrat wrote in a letter to colleagues that circulated on social media.

"The situation of this unhinged president could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy," she added.

  1. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke with the nation's top military officer on Friday about precautions in place to prevent President Donald Trump from ordering a nuclear strike or conducting other military hostilities as Democrats seek his removal from office.

    The stunning revelation came in a letter from the speaker to House Democrats outlining next steps following a violent breach of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday by Trump supporters. Pelosi said she spoke to Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley about guardrails in place that could prevent "an unstable president" from wielding the military or the country's nuclear arsenal.

    1. La presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes, Nancy Pelosi, ha anunciado este viernes en un comunicado dirigido a sus colegas que ha hablado con el presidente del Estado Mayor Conjunto, el general Mark Milley, sobre la posibilidad de evitar que el presidente Donald Trump pueda ordenar acciones militares o lanzar un ataque nuclear.

      En concreto, Pelosi asegura que abordó con Milley "las precauciones disponibles para evitar que un presidente inestable inicie hostilidades militares o acceda a los códigos de lanzamiento y ordene un ataque nuclear".

      La situación con "este presidente desquiciado" no podría ser "más peligrosa", advierte la demócrata, que enfatiza la necesidad de "hacer todo lo posible para proteger al pueblo estadounidense de su asalto desequilibrado" al país y a la democracia de EE.UU.
