Rep. Ro Khanna, US Representative for California's 17th district, returns to Press the Button for an exclusive look at his efforts to redirect Pentagon spending toward efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. High on his list of possible cuts are the massive increases for new nuclear weapons proposed by President Donald Trump, including a freeze on the new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Early Warning features Alexandra Bell of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation and Richard Nephew of Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs on a new report detailing the effects of the Trump administration's nuclear policy.
