In a press conference that can perhaps best be described as unhinged and berating, President Donald Trump warned of the potential of a “nuclear holocaust” while stressing the necessity of a positive relationship between the United States and Russia on Thursday. “Maybe I’m not going to be able to do a deal with Russia but at least I tried,” Trump said, in response to a question from CBS’s Major Garrett about recent provocative incidents between the U.S. and Russia, including a Russian aircraft buzzing a U.S. Navy ship three times in one day. Trump has denied any ties between Russia and his campaign, although new reports have indicated that some Trump associates had contact with Russian intelligence. Further, this week, Trump’s national security adviser, MIchael Flynn, resigned after it was revealed that he’d lied about discussing sanctions with the Russian ambassador before Trump’s inauguration.
