When Donald Trump first took office, many pundits believed that he would settle into his presidency and pivot to normality.Unlike those leaders, Trump can plunge the world into a devastating nuclear war at his personal command.In fact, if Trump pushes the North Korean regime into a corner, he is more likely to provoke a war.Trump will likely stir up tensions soon again; he can't help himself.Trump's obsession with winning and inability to accept a balance of power constitute a dire threat.As special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation continues to raise the emotional and political pressure on Trump, the president's temptation to resort to war could rise dramatically. Given the warning signs, the U.S. Congress should move urgently to remove Trump's unilateral ability to launch a war, especially a nuclear war.With Trump in power, it is especially urgent – a matter of survival – that Congress clearly and explicitly reasserts its constitutional authority.Trump may be psychologically incapable of that, because he predisposed to attack, rather than compromise.
