President Trump has unfettered access to launch U.S. nuclear weapons. Once he gives the order, no one can contradict him. Once the missiles launch, they cannot be recalled. This is one of the risks facing a new president. But Trump’s policies could also greatly reduce nuclear risks, if he can solve the North Korean problem or strike a new deal with Russia. Nuclear policy expert Joe Cirincione will discuss all this and more in an important lecture, as we sit on the verge of a new “cold war” and ask: is history repeating itself? Are we entering a new nuclear arms race? Cirincione is the President of the Ploughshares Fund, a public grant-making foundation focused on nuclear weapons policy and conflict resolution
