  • Trump threatens to build up US nuclear arsenal until Russia China 'come to their senses'

Mr Bolton said he also spoke with Mr Putin about arms control and the United States president's decision to abandon the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which was drawn up to protect America and its allies in Europe and the Far East, because of alleged violations by Moscow.

FILE - U.S. President Ronald Reagan (R) and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev exchange pens during the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty signing ceremony in the White House East Room in Washington, D.C., December 8, 1987. "But right now, they (Russia) have not adhered to the agreement". While lawmakers approved a 4 percent funding increase for the Department of Energy nuclear weapons budget last month, Trump's Republican Party is at risk of losing control of the House in midterm elections in two weeks - a shift that would give him less leeway to boost spending. "This should have been done years ago".

He said there was no evidence that the meddling materially affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, but that it did create mistrust towards Russian Federation and provide a strong lesson to the Kremlin: "Don't mess with American elections". Not a party to the bilateral accord, China has developed a significant force of land-based, conventionally armed, medium-range ballistic missiles to counter the U.S. military buildup in its "pivot to Asia". "And it includes Russian Federation", the U.S. president continued. "And it includes anybody else that wants to play that game". You can't play that game on me, " Trump asserted. Moscow also threatened to shoot down USA missiles in Syria, and Trump responded on Twitter with threats of "nice and new and 'smart!'" USA missiles.

The INF was a "bilateral treaty in a multipolar ballistic missile world", Bolton said, adding that no formal steps had yet been taken but that the U.S. would exit the treaty "in due course".

"It's Russian violations of the treaty, in our view, that has gotten us this to this point, and it's something that's been going on for five years, if not more", he said in one interview.

Bolton told Kommersant that Washington wanted to "resolve the INF issue first".

Bolton, speaking to reporters after his talks with Putin, said Trump would like to meet the Russian president in Paris and that precise arrangements were being worked on.
