Overcoming Trump's ignorance of nuclear-weapon damage

I was privileged in 1987 on a reporting fellowship to visit the Peace Park and Museum built in Hiroshima to commemorate the 1945 A-bomb strike which incinerated that city.

The exhibits in the museum reduced visiting adults and Japanese school children on their mandatory, one-time tour to tears.

Donald Trump might not so cavalierly suggest the proliferation of nuclear weapons, or willfully play antagonistic word games with a nuclear-armed North Korea, if he could visualize the shocking, deadly damage which blew through the wildfire zone in Northern California transferred to an entire, nuclear-bombed city:

Despite clear risks, Santa Rosa neighborhood that burned down was exempt from fire regulations
