Nuclear arms proliferation experts have expressed alarm at what appears to be tit-for-tat comments from Russian President Putin and President-elect Donald Trump over the past 24 hours about strengthening their countries' nuclear arsenals.

Samore tells Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti that he doesn't take Trump's tweets too seriously "until we see how his actual policies come out."

This segment aired on December 23, 2016.
