Rep. Seth Moulton doubled down on the Democrats hawkish statements and actions in relation to Russia. However this time he may have gone to far.
This Democratic congressman suggested that Russia is leading the United States toward a nuclear war and he doesn’t believe the Trump administration has a plan to deal with Russian aggression.
This hawkish Democrat seemed to suggest that Russia’s Nuclear warhead program is a threat to the United States.
He then said that the Russian Nuclear program could drag the United States into a nuclear conflict.
“For a long time, Russia and the United States had this sort of mutual agreement, mutually assured destruction,”
He said Friday on CNN’s “New Day.”
“If they shot their weapons at us, we’d shoot our weapons at them, and therefore a nuclear war was unlikely to happen. But what Russia now says is that they will quote, ‘escalate to deescalate.’ They are willing to use nuclear weapons to deescalate a conventional attack. I think that the problem here is that we don’t really have a plan to deal with that.”
