US will outrun Russia without new missile Pact – PresidentTrump

Intro

President of the United States, Donald Trump has vowed that the United States would outspend Russia on missiles without a fresh international accord after he ditched a landmark Cold War treaty.

Trump’s warning during his annual State of the Union address cemented fears of an emerging arms race, with Russia hours earlier pledging to design new missiles over the next two years.

The United States last week started the process of exiting the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, saying that Russia has been violating the pact through a new missile system and ignored repeated complaints.

“Under my administration, we will never apologize for advancing America’s interests,” Trump told US lawmakers assembled in the House chamber.
