As president of the United States, Donald Trump has supreme authority to launch a nuclear strike and literally no one can stop him.
We can change that. Two members of Congress, Rep. Ted Lieu and Sen. Ed Markey, have proposed urgent legislation to prevent the U.S. president from starting a nuclear war without a declaration of war by Congress.
Trump exposes the terrifying power of a system built for speed and mass destruction at the president’s sole discretion. From opening the door to using nuclear weapons in the Middle East to questioning why we have nuclear weapons if we “can’t use” them, Donald Trump has shown just how dangerous it is to let any one person have the unchecked power to destroy the entire world with the push of a button.
Sign the petition and call on Congress to keep us safe by making it illegal for President Trump, or any successor, to start a nuclear war
