While General Hayden was explaining to the Morning Joe crew why he wouldn't vote for Trump, Joe dropped a bombshell about Trump and nuclear weapons.
Here’s some of the text:
MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' host, former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough, recalled an incident live on air in which he claimed "several months ago, a foreign policy expert went to advise Donald Trump and three times he asked about the use of nuclear weapons."
Scarborough made the comment in a discussion about why Donald Trump does not have any foreign policy experts advising him. Former CIA Director Micheal Hayden was asked who in the intelligence community is advising Trump, to which Hayden responded, 'no one.'
Scarborough added he was told that Trump specifically asked, "'If we have nuclear weapons, why can't we use them?'" Scarborough's co-host, Mika Brzezinski ended the segment, in which the other panelists appeared genuinely shocked, saying "Be careful America, and be careful Republican leaders, your party blowing up."
I edited the title of the diary to better reflect this was not an official “national” security briefing, but a foreign policy briefing that was delivered to Trump by a foreign policy advisor, as communicated by Joe Scarborough during his morning show discussion with General Hayden.
Thanks for the feedback.
