Politics: Biden team weighs killing Trump’s new nuclear weapons  

Officials are considering canceling weapons that were backed by the last administration. 

The Biden administration is considering killing off several nuclear weapons programs that were greenlit by the Trump White House as an internal debate over the nation’s atomic arsenal enters its final phase. 

According to nine current and former officials with knowledge of the deliberations, the Nuclear Posture Review, which is expected to be completed as early as next month, is not expected to make major changes to nuclear policy.
