The Trump presidency could see the post-apocalyptic genre make a big comeback

The Donald Trump presidency is going to be a boon for speculative fiction writers, especially amongst those nervous NATO members and the countries in the South China Sea. Various apocalyptic scenarios seems a touch more likely than a week ago - especially as he seems to have an itchy trigger finger with the nukes.

This quote is from an unnamed US source via CNBC on a security briefing with the Donald prior to him becoming the most powerful man in the world.

"Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times [Trump] asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can't we use them."
