Trump's Nuclear Tweeting Stuns Even Fox News

Even Fox News is sobering up to the potential effects of a Trump presidency. While Trump's economic policy would benefit the nation's wealthiest, Trump's foreign policy may put a damper on their party—particularly the president-elect's cluelessness about nuclear war. 

“The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time that the world comes to its senses regarding nukes," Trump tweeted Thursday.

Surprisingly, the tweet immediately sparked controversy with none other than the economist and Fox Business host Stuart Varney, who called it a "big deal."

“I’m thinking this out,” Neil Cavuto told Stuart Varney. “Let’s say we get to Dow 20,000, so we’re all richer for it. But Donald Trump also promises more nukes, so we’re all blown up just as we’re counting our money.” 

Varney was stunned.

“What? Have you become some kind of leftist all of a sudden?” Varney joked.

“No, I’m just worried,” Cavuto explained. "You don't seem to be..."

“Get out of here,” Varney scoffed.

“I am thinking about that,” Cavuto told him. “That would be something. We hit Dow 20,000… ka-boom.” 

Cavuto quickly turned to discuss Amazon's incredible holiday delivery speeds, but maybe should have ended the segment right there.
