The USA and Russia have around 6000 nuclear warheads each, which is ten times more than they will ever need. Extending START means nothing since neither has the funds or need to expand. Russia was replacing some of its old warheads and Trump wanted that stopped. But Trump didn’t want a deal with Russia to reduce them so insisted that China with 300 nuclear warheads must join talks.
