The Donald Trump Approach
In 2019, President Donald Trump embarked on a new era of nuclear deterrence. In his 2019 State of the Union Address, he noted the importance of having a strong nuclear arsenal to combat the rising threat of the Eurasian Union. This led to Trump pushing for stronger, more powerful nuclear weapons, and, reinstated some discontinued Missiles programs.
Russian Missile Tests
Russia conducted two missile tests in 2019 and 2020. a 5 MT bomb in Kazakhstan and a 10 MT Weapon in Siberia. The Radioactive Fallout drifted over into Alaska and gained the attention of the American Government
President Trump called the test "a foolish gesture." and led to the American Recommitment of nuclear weapons.
Two Administrations began building up America's Arsenal, and so did Russia's Government. Arsenals topped 30,000 near the end of the 2020s. The Depression set the buildup on both sides back, But, saw it's recommitment in the late 2030s, despite opposition from the President of the United States at the time.
By 2050, the Governments had a combination of more than 60,000 nuclear weapons, enough to destroy the world several times over. America had placed Nuclear Weapons in Missile Silos in nearly every state, and along the coastlines of the Atlantic Ocean, directly aimed at Russia.
In 2070, a Temporary Period of Nuclear Disarmament began. The U.S. would dip below 20,000 for the first time in nearly 50 years. In 2080 however, the U.S. began rebuilding their arsenal.
