Trump, who has threatened "fire and fury" if North Korea continues its provocations, returned to the subject of Obama on Thursday morning, retweeting a survey by ProgressPolls, which asked: "Who is a better President of the United States?"
It had been unclear whether other agencies had signed onto the Defense Intelligence Agency's determination earlier this week, and some observers noted that the Pentagon-based analysts have in the past generously estimated the capacity of some opposing militaries.
An analysis from the Defense Intelligence Agency also found that the country will produce intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting the continental U.S. And, just like then, his latest attempt to suggest he is viewed more favorably than his Democratic predecessor is misleading to say the least. Every recent president has authorized one, and any current improvements to the nuclear arsenal are the result of President Obama's last assessment in 2010.
Easily lost in this week's apocalyptic taunting across the Pacific Ocean was President Donald Trump's claim that he has personally updated the USA nuclear arsenal. Pointing to his executive order to "renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal", he said that arsenal is "now stronger and more powerful than ever before". I would like Russian Federation and the United States, and China and Pakistan, and many other countries that have nuclear weapons get rid of them.
As for the Navy, its aircraft carriers no longer carry tactical nuclear weapons, nor do its surface warships carry nuclear-capable cruise missiles.
Madeleine Z Bordallo, the US Congresswoman for Guam, said she was confident US forces could protect it from the "deeply troubling" North Korean nuclear threat.

President Trump boasted on Wednesday that he had made USA nuclear weapons more powerful.
"There is nothing Trump has done, or frankly could have done, to make any changes to the nuclear arsenal in his first six months".
Among other things, they also described the president as "something of a laughing stock" at worldwide gatherings.
"As you know, we reduced [anti-missile spending] by 5 percent but I've decided I don't want that", said Trump, who spoke to reporters following a meeting with national security adviser H.R. McMaster and chief of staff John Kelly.
