Trump has discussed with advisers the possibility of resuming nuclear test – media

In the administration of the President of the United States Donald trump discussed the possibility of resuming nuclear tests, writes the newspaper The Washington Post , citing three senior officials in the White house and the US government.

The first since 1992, nuclear testing, the administration trump was considered as a possible response to the alleged continued nuclear tests of small power in Russia and China (although, as noted by WP, convincing evidence of these allegations, Washington has not shown).

One interlocutor of the newspaper declared that by results of discussion the decision on carrying out or refusal of the test was taken. Another source said that the team of U.S. President refused the idea.

The Council of national security of the United States refused to comment on this information.

WP reminds you that the United States conducted the last nuclear test explosion in September 1992. The United States is the only country to use nuclear weapons during the war (the bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945). In General, since 1945 the nuclear powers have conducted more than 2 thousand, about 1 thousand of them are in the USA.

The United States remains the only country to use nuclear weapons in time of war, but since 1945 at least eight countries have jointly conducted approximately 2,000 nuclear tests, of which more than 1000 were conducted by the United States.

In 1996, the UN General Assembly was adopted the Agreement on a comprehensive ban on nuclear tests, however, it has still not entered into force because it was not ratified by all signatory countries (the U.S. among them). However, the newspaper writes, the nuclear-weapon States have generally respected the moratorium on tests (except North Korea).
