Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton on Friday defended remarks he made earlier this week that President Donald Trump could lead the United States into a nuclear war with Russia through misguided leadership.
The Massachusetts Democrat first made the claim Monday in a podcast interview at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
“We might not even get to the long term because we could literally have a nuclear war with Vladimir Putin,” Moulton said. Part of the reason for that war, he predicted, is Trump’s “sole decision-making authority over nuclear weapons.”
Moulton did not back down from his comments when pressed by CNN’s Poppy Harlow on Friday.
“That’s right,” he responded when the quote was read back to him.
