I am someone who thinks that the threat of nuclear war is unlikely in our day and age…
Mutually assured destruction is my pet theory regarding the likelihood of nuclear war in the 21st century, and I use this same rationality to argue against gun control.
I still hold this belief, but I also agree that Joe Biden is inching the world closer to nuclear war, and while I still believe that nuclear war is unlikely, he does constitute a threat to national as well as global security.
Biden is reckless with his words, with the White House having to backtrack his high profile foreign policy comments twice this year…
A nuclear war with Russia or China benefits no one. It doesn’t benefit us, it doesn’t benefit them, and President Trump has taken to the internet to voice his concerns with a clearly unwell, incompetent, and dangerous ‘President’:
Trump said a lot of crazy shit. But even Trump never ran his mouth so much that he threatened nuclear war against Russia and China at the same time. If Trump was too dangerous to be president, so is Biden.

Washington Examiner explained:
At the moment, the U.S. and many other Western nations have rallied behind Ukraine as its forces try to fend off an invasion by Russia, leading to renewed apprehension about nuclear strikes of some variety.
For instance, former Joint Chiefs Chairman and retired Adm. Mike Mullen warned over the weekend that the U.S. should prepare for the “possibility” of Russia using a nuclear weapon.
Let's be clear, the whole world wanted Biden to beat Trump so we could sleep at night without wondering if we were going to wake up tomorrow about to go to nuclear war because the president got into a Twitter fight. We still remember this behavior, even if you conveniently forgot pic.twitter.com/9FrVgBsxN8

Just The News mentioned this detail:
There are nearly 13,000 nuclear warheads in the world, the Arms Control Association observed. Russia and the U.S. control about 90% of global warheads.
