[POLL] Trump’s ‘Nuclear Button’ Tweet: Genius or Deadly?

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un got into a “size matters” debate earlier this month.

Of course, they were talking about their nuclear arsenals. Trump tweeted that he has a “much bigger & more powerful” nuclear button than his nemesis has.

Now, not everything Mr. Trump tweets is taken seriously. Even his biggest supporters acknowledge the president sometimes tweets rather hastily.

But Americans took this particular tweet seriously. How do I know? Very simple.

Sales of Potassium Iodide – which protects people’s thyroids from absorbing radioactive iodine from a nuclear explosion – went through the roof the following week.

We’ll look at that more closely in a moment. Right now, let’s see how the normally liberal Washington Post viewed the president’s tweet.

‘A Stroke of Stable Genius’

To my surprise, the Post called it “a stroke of stable genius.”

In fact, the newspaper compared Trump’s remark to a statement from 40th U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1981. That was his first year in the Oval Office.

Reagan said the U.S. and Soviet Union could survive an exchange of tactical nuclear weapons.

Reagan’s director of East European and Soviet affairs on the National Security Council added that nuclear war was a 40 percent probability at the time.

Moscow Got the Message

The firm-handed statements from Reagan and his administration were heard loud and clear in Moscow.

Unlike some previous presidents, Reagan would not allow the U.S. to be pushed around by Soviet Union leaders. Or by any other country.

In fact, the Russians expressed concern that Reagan might be getting ready for a nuclear first strike. The president was even ordering drills to prepare for it.

The Post wrote recently that, “The belief of Soviet leaders that Reagan might just be crazy enough to push the nuclear button constrained Soviet behavior and helped make possible a peaceful end to the Cold War.”

A Page From Reagan’s Book?

With his tweet, was Trump taking a page from Reagan’s book to deter North Korea and its sabre rattling?

The Washington Post thinks so. The paper wrote recently that, “Now Trump is trying to send a similar message to the North Korean regime.”

The editorial stated that Trump’s message was neither unstable nor stupid.

“To the contrary,” the Post wrote, “it was part of an intentional campaign designed to get North Korea to understand that Trump, unlike his predecessors, is willing to use force to stop Pyongyang from threatening America cities.”

Tough Talk From North Korea

How will North Korea react to Trump’s tweet? Only Kim Jong-Un’s future behavior will fully answer that question.

In the meantime, the North Korean state media referred to it as “a spasm of a lunatic.”

Among other comments coming out of North Korea recently are:

“We need to mass-produce nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles and accelerate their deployment.”

“The entire U.S. mainland is within our firing range. If the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch, it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe.”

“Unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the U.S. is thoroughly eradicated, we will never put our nuclear weapons and ballistic rockets on the negotiation table under any circumstance.” Trump’s Tweet Sparks KI Sales

Getting back to those Potassium Iodide sales…

One dealer of Potassium Iodide (also known as KI) says he sells about 8,400 doses per week. But the week following Trump’s tweet, he says he shipped about 140,000 doses.

Another KI dealer said he saw a “bump in sales,” while others declined to comment.

As mentioned earlier, Potassium Iodide protects people’s thyroids from absorbing radioactive iodine. That’s what can spread following a nuclear explosion.

In fact, Potassium Iodide tablets block 90 to 95% of all health problems related to radiation. Including thyroid cancer – the main side effect of the Chernobyl disaster.

More Important Than Ever to Be Self-Reliant

With tensions between the two countries growing… it’s important to stop and think about what this type of catastrophic event would mean for you and your family if you haven’t already.

As evident by sales after Trump’s tweet, many Americans are realizing the importance of adding Potassium Iodide tablets to their own preparations.

You have to start taking Potassium Iodide immediately if there’s a radiation emergency. Even if your local hospital or FEMA office has a small stash, you can’t get there in time for the handouts.

Not to mention… you’d be fighting the crowds.

That’s why you need to have it on hand before a disaster strikes. And you also need to make sure you have the right kind.

For a limited time, we’re offering you the chance to get this peace of mind for free. (All we ask is that you help with a small shipping fee.)

This is no knockoff or substitute solution. I’m offering you a FREE supply of the genuine article, iOSAT tablets – the only full-strength FDA approved protection available.
