US DEFCON nuclear attack warning DOWNGRADED to lowest level after Trump’s election win
AMERICA has stepped back from the brink of nuclear war – because of Donald Trump’s shock election victory, it has been claimed.
The defense readiness condition, dubbed DEFCON, is an alert system used by the US military to indicate the risk of nuclear war.
The system has five levels of readiness, or states of alert, increasing in severity from DEFCON 5 – the least severe – to DEFCON 1 – the most severe.
Last month it was upgraded to level 3, meaning the US Air Force is ready to mobilise in just 15 minutes.
But following Trump’s Brexit-style election win, the DEFCON warning system website claims the threat been downgraded to level 5 – the safest grade.
