LAUGHINGSTOCK-IN-CHIEF:

Japan and South Korea Confused by Trump's Suggestion They Build Nuclear Arsenals (Claire Landsbaum, 3/29/16, NY Mag)

 In his interview with the Times, Trump said America's alliances with countries like Japan and South Korea are too expensive. Instead of relying on American troops, which costs the U.S. money, Trump suggested these countries build up their own nuclear arsenals.
