DONALD Trump is of preparing a “dangerous and destabilising” policy which will allow the US to fire nuclear weapons in a “non-nuclear strategic attack”, it has been claimed.

The US is to allow the use of nuclear weapons to respond to “extreme circumstances” which means they could be deployed in response to a cyber attack, a large terror attack or another strategic threat.

While the Trump administration says the stance in its nuclear posture review is merely a “clarification” of previous policy, critics say it marks a radical departure.

Alexandra Bell at the Centre for Arms Control and a former non-proliferation official at the state department said: “I think it’s a dangerous and destabilising break with 40 years of bipartisan efforts to reduce nuclear threats around the world.”

She argued that it was dangerous to broaden the circumstances under which the US may use nuclear weapons.

She added: “The US is abandoning its leadership role in helping to reduce overall nuclear stockpiles and encourage non-proliferation.”

But the Pentagon insists the new measures will allow diplomats to work “from a position of strength”.

US defence Secretary Jim Mattis said in the document: “Our goal is to convince adversaries they have nothing to gain and everything to lose from the use of nuclear weapons.”
