Trump and May comments on Putin's new weapons

RT America

The US military already knew about the weapons Putin boasted about in his state of the union address Thursday and is prepared to defend the United States, said White, who didn't say whether the new policy will mention Russian and Chinese threats.

Putin could be bluffing. A nuclear cruise missile, in theory, would use a small reactor to heat air and fire it out the rear end to create forward thrust.

The Russian possession of hypersonic weapons has spurred a modern, compact and hi-tech revolution of Armed Forces, Putin added.

The US intelligence community concluded a year ago that Russia-linked actors interfered in the 2016 US election on specific orders from Putin. But analysts were skeptical.

Also, according to Russian media, Putin said he hoped that what he said today, "sober any potential aggressor, and Russia's response to a nuclear attack will be instantaneous", reports the Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.

The film's vocal cast includes Gael Garcia Bernal , Benjamin Bratt, Edward James Olmos, Renee Victor and Cheech Marin. Pixar's " Coco " Wins Best Animated Feature & We're So Proud! Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong.

Yet Putin argued his government has little to answer for until the United States provides "some materials, specifics, and data".

"Russia does not plan to get dragged into any arms race", said Peskov.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said last week that the development of a new intercontinental ballistic missile may violate Moscow's treaty obligations.

The missiles travel in a wide arc over Earth, enabling them to strike halfway around the world within an hour.

The Sarmat is a replacement for the Voevoda, or SS-18, the biggest and most deadly Soviet-era missile of the Cold War.

Donald Trump tariffs would damage US, global economies
The Beer Institute , the beer industry's national trade association, also came out against Trump's tariff decision on Thursday. On the heels of a proposed Trump Administration tariff on imported steel and aluminum , USA stocks fell sharply on Thursday.

A number of lawmakers have been pressing the Pentagon to deploy ground-based interceptors at a new East Coast missile site - which theoretically would allow the military to take a second shot at a missile coming from North Korea and a first shot at a missile from Iran.

Putin claimed the missile makes NATO's defenses "completely useless". The new version is slated to reach full service in 50 silos around 2020, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies. His comments were accompanied by a video showing Russian nuclear weapons headed for Florida, where Trump often spends weekends and vacations at his Mar-a-Lago resort. Such blinding speeds would enable a hypersonic cruise missile to evade interceptor rockets, which fly at relatively slow speeds.

"That's why one of important ideas voiced during the [president's State of the Nation] address is a proposal to stop fuelling a new arms race and to start searching for ways of preserving peace", he said.

The video shows what appears to be a possible test launching from a military jet. The bullets can target a warhead, slam into it mid-flight, and obliterate the weapon.

What should get the attention of American counterintelligence is that the threat posed by the Russian hypersonic missile program was known from an Army report on Skolkovo released in 2013 and highlighted by Peter Schweizer in his 2016 report, "From Russian with Money", to assess "the implications ... for US policymakers".
