According to Scarborough, a foreign policy expert who briefed Trump told him that the Republican nominee repeatedly asked him about our country’s reluctance to use nuclear weapons.
“Three times he asked about the use of nuclear weapons,” Scarborough said. “Three times he asked, at one point, ‘If we have them, why can’t we use them?’ That’s one of the reasons he doesn’t have foreign policy experts around.”
Scarborough then asked his guest, former CIA and National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, about whether there were any ways to stop Trump from ordering a nuclear strike if he were elected president.
“The system is designed for speed and decisiveness,” Hayden replied. “It’s not designed to debate the decision.” If hearing that does not make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up you might want to check your pulse.
In other, possible less troubling, Trump news:

In a New York Post article some inside of his campaign are taking notice of his mental state:A Trump campaign source, in reax to this, tells me "it's all true" and "way worse than people realize." https://t.co/nvioNcjMCJ— Ali Vitali (@alivitali) August 3, 2016
“I did not think he’d be great in a general election, and thought there’d be episodes of paranoia/irrationality, but this is surprising for me,” one Trump operative told The Post.
“Trump is getting nuttier and nuttier,” the person added.
Good, so it appears that the Trump campaign is coming apart at the seams. That should keep him away from the nuclear codes.
There is also a devastating new article from Newsweek, that strips away a lot of Trump's mythology.
In fact in response to the possibility that Trump might simply take his ball and go home, the Republicans are scrambling to find a replacement for him on the ballot.
So all in all it appears that finally everybody is noticing what should have been obvious from the start, Donald Trump should NEVER be allowed any where near the Oval Office.
I am not sure why the Republicans could not figure that out before nominating him, but better late than never I guess.
