President Obama: I'm More Concerned About A Nuke In New York Than Russia
Former New York deputy mayor: "I guess I am now too." Obama was responding to a question about whether Mitt Romney was right about Russia.
President Obama said Tuesday he's more concerned about a nuclear weapon detonating in New York City than Russia when it comes to U.S. security.
"Russia's actions are a problem; they don't pose the number-one security threat to the United States," Obama said. "I continue to be much more concerned, when it comes to our security, with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan, which is part of the reason why the United States, showing its continued international leadership has organized a forum over the last several years that has been able to eliminate that threat in a consistent way."
Obama was asked about whether former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was right when he called Russia the top geopolitical threat for the United States.
