Donald Trump talks gibberish about nuclear weapons then announces trip to Mars Jimmy McCloskey, Metro UK 20 Sep 2019  Donald Trump spouted a stream of gibberish about the US’s nuclear arsenal at a press conference Friday. The President of the United States told reporters at the White House: ‘Nobody can beat us militarily. No-one can even come close. ‘Our nuclear was getting very tired..Now we have it in, as we would say, tippy-top shape. ‘Tippy top. We have new and we have renovated and it’s incredible. We all should pray we never have to use it.’ Trump was speaking in response to questions about the US’s military capability amid increasing tensions between America and Iran…….

The president tore up his precedessor Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal which saw Iran agree to wind down its attempts to build a nuclear weapon and have economic sanctions lifted against it in return. Meanwhile, Trump also announced plans to send US astronauts to Mars on Friday – and said they’d be stopping off on the moon en route. Speaking at the joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Trump said: ‘We’re going to Mars.
‘We’re stopping at the moon – the moon is actually a launching pad, that’s why we’re stopping at the moon.’ Trump explained plans to charge space tourism entrepreneurs like Tesla founder Elon Musk and Amazon owner Jeff Bezos to use US launchpad facilities to help fund the planned missions.
