DoD Officials Preview Trump’s Draft Nuclear Weapons Strategy to Senate Panel

1 min read

John Rood, defense undersecretary for policy, and Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Tuesday provided Senate Armed Services Committee members a classified preview of President Donald Trump’s draft Nuclear Posture Review, Defense News reported Tuesday.

The draft document seeks to advance the development of low-yield nuclear weapons for U.S. submarines and sub-launched cruise missiles.

The Trump administration plans to issue a final version of the review in February.

Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) said the document should be publicly released.

“That’s not just public for the American public ― it will be public for other countries to read,” Sullivan noted.

“So much of any nuclear deterrence policy relies on credibility.”

The Defense Department also released a national security strategy that aims to expand the competitive space through military readiness, alliances and changes to DoD’s business practices.
