Some representatives of the administration were against it.
Over the past two years, White House officials have discussed the possibility of resuming nuclear tests in the United States, said former national security adviser John Bolton.
“This topic was discussed,” Bolton, a strong proponent of the tests, told the British Guardian newspaper.
However, this was opposed by some representatives of the administration, who believe that the available computer simulations of nuclear warhead tests are sufficient.
At the time of Bolton’s departure from the White House last September, no decision had been made.
