Clapper, who had a long military career, is a close friend and longtime colleague of Trump’s Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis, a former Marine Corps general. “If in a fit of pique he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un, there’s actually very little to stop him,” Clapper, former head of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said on CNN. “The whole system is built to ensure rapid response if necessary. So there’s very little in the way of controls over exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary.”
