Evan Vucci / AP
- Nuclear arsenal: Trump wants to take the United States to the "top of the pack" and said that it was "never going to fall behind on nuclear power."
- A globalist? The self-proclaimed "Mr. Brexit" stated that he's "totally in favor" of the European Union, calling it "wonderful."
- Russia: Trump said he'd talk to Putin personally "if and when [they] meet" about the reported deployment of a new Russian cruise missile in violation of an arms control treaty with the United States. He is not in favor of another "one-sided" START treaty.
- North Korea: He called North Korea "a dangerous situation" but believes that China can "end it very quickly." He also floated the idea of a missile defense system for Japan and South Korea as an option in the region.
