On Thursday, The Associated Press reported that a Trump administration review of the U.S. nuclear weapons program has found that the weapons program could not be made safe, and could cause more harm than good.
The review, by the National Nuclear Security Administration, concluded that while the program was “capable of being retired,” it could be reduced to a level of safe production.
It also noted that there are many other programs with similar capabilities and would be more easily scaled down to the point where they could be phased out.
The report comes amid a national debate over whether the country should pursue a nuclear weapons reduction treaty with North Korea, which has tested four ballistic missiles since Trump took office in January.
North Korea has also repeatedly threatened to attack Guam, a U.K. territory, in a possible nuclear attack.
This week, North Korea’s military conducted its fifth and largest nuclear test, a missile that flew over Japan and was capable of reaching the mainland U.N. island territory.
The missile launch comes as the United Nations is preparing to discuss sanctions against North Korea.
The White House has also said that Trump’s decision to launch 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from a U,S.
Navy submarine in the Atlantic Ocean could be a “catastrophic mistake” that would cost the U and its allies more than $1 trillion.
In addition, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is believed to have ordered the launch in a bid to further isolate the U., which has been forced to impose sanctions on the communist country.
The Trump administration has also called for a new, more targeted missile defense system, but has yet to unveil a proposal.
On Thursday’s episode of “The Colbert Report,” the hosts said they would “truly, completely and completely take a stand” against any action that would put the U, S. or South Korea at greater risk.
“If the president decides to go ahead and launch 59 missiles, it’s going to be a disaster for the country of the United States,” Colbert said.
“The United States and the U of S of South Korea are going to have to be very, very careful, and it’s a very, a very costly mistake for them to do that.”
Colbert said the U S would “be very, incredibly, very concerned.”
He added, “We have to think about what our interests are.”
In the meantime, he said, “this is the time for us to really, truly take a very hard look at what we are doing, and we will.”
