>…Do presidents have checks on their ability to launch nukes? I honestly don't know and I'm wondering who here knows; I'm sure somebody here does. Can the chiefs of staff or such veto a nuclear strike? I feel like that must be true, but then they could be on Trump's side.
>…I honestly think that there WILL be nuclear war if Trump wins. I'm currently reading Dr. Bloodmoney by Philip K Dick and its imagery of a post-global-nuclear-war America (specifically the Bay Area) is chilling and almost prophetic. If Trump is elected, I would not want to live in or near a city.
>…He's the fucking devil and will bring potentially irreversible chaos and destruction to the Earth.
A US president can unilaterally launch nukes. There is no veto power.
Johnson and Weld in 2016.
