Nance also noted the recent developments with North Korea, asserting that if the president decides “he’s going to burn that program out of the ground with perhaps a nuclear weapon, well these generals are going to have to be the ones that have to consequences of that, because his consequence management skills are null.”
Although Gen. Kelly will follow the chain of command, Nance explained that he “might have to be the guy who tackles [Trump]” before the president makes irrational decisions, including the possibility of nuclear war with North Korea.
