John Noonan on Twitter: Donald Trump Shouldn’t Have Access to Nuclear Weapons

John Noonan, a conservative national security adviser and former nuclear weapons officer, criticized Donald Trump in an epic Twitter rant. Noonan, who worked for Jeb Bush and Mitt Romeny, said that Trump shouldn’t be allowed near nuclear weapons.

Noonan’s Twitter rant came in response to a comment Joe Scarborough made on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday morning. Scarborough said he learned from an unnamed source that Trump asked if the U.S. could use its nuclear weapons.

“Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times [Trump] asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can’t we use them,” Scarborough said.

Noonan wrote that the ” whole idea behind nuclear deterrence is that you don’t use the damn things.” He added, “The nuke triad, which Trump doesn’t have a clue about, has been the single greatest contributor to global peace for decades. You heard me.” Noonan also said that if Trump used nuclear weapons, he “would be undoing 6 decades of proven deterrence theory. The purpose of nukes is that they are never used.”

Noonan has been critical of Trump’s campaign. Earlier this week in The National Review, Noonen wondered if Trump understood how elections work after his comments about the Khan family.


Here’s the full 20-tweet rant:

3. When we went into ICBM training, we went through a battery of tests and interviews. Are you sane? Are you willing to turn your key?”

Noonan, at times Donald J. Trump is rude and crude, but more than anything he’s on America’s side. Whose side are you on?

Concern

WHY IS THER SO MUCH BACKLASH, BY BOTH PARTIES, AGAINST TRUMP?

IS IT BECAUSE HE TELLS IT THE WAY IT IS? IS IT BECAUSE HE KEEP TALKING ABOUT RIGGED SYSTEM?
IS IT BECAUSE HE WILL BUST OPEN THE FACT THAT OUR POLITICIANS, ARE BUSY WORKING FOR THEIR DONERS AND INTREST GROUPS, VS US?
OR IS IT BECAUSE IT WILL COME EVEN MORE INTO OPEN THAT OUR REPRESENTATIVES WALK EVERY DAY TO A UNMARKED BUILDING, NEAR CAPITAL HILLS, AND SPEND 4 HOURS A DAY, SITTING IN A BOOT, MAKING PHONE CALLS TO GET DONATION FOR THEIR CAMPAIGN AND FOR THEIR PARTY?
THEN WE ALL WONDER TO WHY NOTHING IS GETTING DONE FOR AVG JOE AND JANE!!!!
AND NOW I HAVE TO WONDER WHY TRUMP IS GETTING ATTACKED ON HOURLY BASES!!!!!!!!!!!
