Speaker Nancy Pelosi has urged the Pentagon’s top general to prevent “unstable” Donald Trump from launching a military conflict or using assigned codes to launched US nuclear weapons.
In a letter to Housen Democrats, Ms Pelosi said: “This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.
“The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.”
