In world news, President Donald Trump has scrapped a the INF missile treaty, a key nuclear arms treaty with Russia. Justin King, a journalist from The Fifth Column, explains why that was a gift to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The INF missile treaty banned short and intermediate-range missiles that were land-based (the ones that carry nuclear weapons). The U.S. uses sea and sky-based missiles, so this didn't affect us, but it did hold back Russia whose nuclear arms are land-based. By scrapping the treaty, President Trump is opening the door to Putin and thrown Europe under the bus, especially Eastern Europe which has close proximity to Russia. Russia pulled out of the treaty a day after Trump did. This move escalates the threat of nuclear violence and nuclear war.
