After Trump's Censorship, US Reveals Nuclear Bomb Numbers

The US State Department released on Tuesday, for the first time in four years, the number of nuclear warheads the country stores, after former President Donald Trump censored the data. As of September 30, 2020, the United States Army had 3,750 active and inactive nuclear warheads, 55 fewer than the previous year and 72 fewer than on the same date in 2017. The figure was also the lowest since America's nuclear arsenal peaked at the height of the Cold War with Russia in 1967, when there were a total of 31,255 warheads.
