Trump: The US Has Weapons Systems That No One Knows About

US President Donald Trump said that the United States has weapons systems that no one knows about. Earlier, American journalist Bob Woodward said that Donald Trump, in conversations with him, stated that the United States had developed a new nuclear weapons system, which has no analogs in Russia or China.

"We have some systems that no one knows about. To be honest, I think it's best to keep it that way. We have some incredible systems," Mr. Trump told reporters before flying to Michigan.

At the same time, he said that over the past 3.5 years, the United States had spent $2.5 trillion on the army. Now, according to him, the US armed forces are stronger than ever. "Now we have new missiles. I hope we will never have to use them, but our nuclear weapons are now in the best condition in decades," the President said.

Earlier in September, Donald Trump said that negotiations between Russia and the United States on non-proliferation of nuclear weapons are going "very well." The Treaty on measures to reduce and limit strategic offensive arms (START-3) expires in February 2021 but can be extended for another five years.

No, we have great, great weaponry. No, I’m not talking about classified; I’m talking about what we build. We’re building great weaponry. Our military is stronger now than it’s ever been. We spent $2.5 trillion on our military over the last three, three and a half years. And we now have new rockets and missiles. And, frankly, our nuclear — we have to hope to God we never have to use it — but our nuclear now is in the best shape it’s been in decades.
