"President Donald Trump’s silence in the face of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s unveiling of the Kremlin’s new Satan 2 nuclear missile, and a video showing it targeting the U.S., is “scary,” said a former American ambassador to Moscow.
Putin unveiled a new hypersonic intercontinental ballistic missile—which cannot be shot down by antimissile systems—Thursday during his annual address to Russia’s Federal Assembly in Moscow.
Other countries listen to Russia only when it comes out with new weapons, Putin said, adding, “You will listen to us now.” He showed a video of nuclear missiles raining down on what appeared to be Florida’s Tampa Bay area, home of the U.S. military’s Central Command.
“A Kremlin leader announced today several new nuclear weapon systems designed to attack America in novel, scary ways, and our commander in chief (unless I missed it?) did not say one word in response. Amazing,” wrote Michael McFaul, U.S. ambassador to Moscow under President Barack Obama.
McFaul wrote that “even 10 years ago, Putin's speech today threatening to attack America in new ways with nuclear weapons would have been sensational news, demanding a response from our president.
“Today? Nothing. Amazing. Disappointing. And scary,” he wrote.”
