Trump Warns Mexico ‘Will No Longer Be Around’ If WWIII Begins

The DC reports:

“Former President Donald Trump warned Mexico of its prospective demise if World War III were to break out during a Univision interview that aired late Thursday.

“You could end up in World War III,” Trump told Univision host Enrique Acevedo. “And if World War III happens, probably Mexico will no longer be around. Because the power of nuclear weapons are so big, if they hit us, you’re gonna be wiped out too. That’s how bad it is.”

 Trump compared the threat of nuclear war to environmental concerns, giving a sense of urgency to the potentiality of global conflict.

“When I hear these people talking about the environment and, over a 300-year period, ‘the oceans will rise by one one hundredth of an inch, and this is such a threat.’ It’s not a threat,” Trump said. “The threat is not global warming, it’s nuclear warming. It’s the single biggest threat to your country, to our county, to every country.”

Nuclear weapons have only been used twice. They were used by the United States to end World War II, dropping the first bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima and the second on the Japanese city of Nagasaki.

The Japanese government surrendered right after that. And the environment of both cities was ruined for some time after that.
