Scottish CND on Donald Trump nuclear button tweet

The chair of Scottish CND is very disappointed that US president Donald Trump has circulated a distasteful message on Twitter about having a nuclear button which is much bigger and more powerful one than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Arthur West chair of Scottish CND said -
For Trump to make of remark of this kind about nuclear weapons is incredibly distasteful.
The use of nuclear weapons anywhere in the world would result in massive loss of life as well as causing substantial environmental damage .
Arthur West added -
On a positive note recent days have seen some direct dialogue between North Korea and South Korea which may lead to a more positive relationship in the future.
Anyone interested in a more peaceful world will welcome this recent contact between the two Koreas but deplore the inflammatory and unhelpful Trump comments .
