President Trump’s recent withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty and his plans to violate the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty are just two of his many actions that are pushing us closer to the brink of nuclear catastrophe.

Today, I spoke during the debate on the annual national defense bill to support two separate measures that would prevent authorization of funds to be used on nuclear yield testing and oppose the Trump Administration’s withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty.

8/ There even more in-depth stuff in my book "Death from the Skies!" They were first seen because the US was checking that the Soviet Union wasn't cheating on the nuclear test ban treaty, of all things.

@S_R_Anders  and Christopher C. Fonzone consider what the U.S. Congress can do to preserve vital international agreements threatened by the Trump administration, from the Open Skies Treaty to the WHO:

Pundits: US uncompromising stance on Open Skies Treaty may result in Europe losing patience one day (Op-ed)

We are now pulling out of the Open Skies Treaty? Really? Please tell me this can't be true.

Withdrawing from the Open Skies Treaty without a replacement further undermines America’s credibility in the global community and makes Americans less safe.

US to announce its intention to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty - another great moment in arms control history if and when it happens!

While he fails to protect Americans from COVID-19, President Trump insists on trashing another treaty. The decision to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty with no replacement makes America less safe.
