Trump aiming for nuclear deal with Russia - CNN

U.S. President Donald Trump has his eyes on a grand nuclear deal with Russia and China, multiple White House officials said.

According to them, the White House is conducting intense interagency talks to develop options for the President to pursue such a deal, building off another nuclear pact, the New START Treaty, which expires in 2021, CNN reported.

"The President has made clear that he thinks that arms control should include Russia and China and should include all the weapons, all the warheads, all the missiles," said a senior White House official. "We have an ambition to give the President options as quickly as possible to give him as much space on the calendar as possible."

"This is something that no administration has tried," the senior official said. "But I would argue no administration has tried what [Trump] tried with North Korea for example."
