Allegations Surface That In A Video From Mar A Lago The Nuclear Football Is Seen Carried By The Secret Service – But Is That The Nuclear Football?

The nuclear football (also known as the atomic football, the president’s emergency satchel, the Presidential Emergency Satchel, the button, the black box, or just the football) is a briefcase, the contents of which are to be used by the President of the United States to authorize a nuclear attack while away from fixed command centers, such as the White House Situation Room. It functions as a mobile hub in the strategic defense system of the United States. It is held by an aide-de-camp.

It is the closest modern-day equivalent of the medieval crown and scepter—a symbol of supreme authority. Accompanying the commander in chief wherever he goes, the innocuous-looking briefcase is touted in movies and spy novels as the ultimate power accessory, a doomsday machine that could destroy the entire world.

Officially known as the “president’s emergency satchel,” the so-called nuclear “Football”—portable and hand-carried—is built around a sturdy aluminum frame, encased in black leather.

Yesterday a video with Trump and the secret service surfaced and people started with the allegations that the Secret Service is carrying “Nuclear Football” and that Trump is still in control.

Our verdict that as much as people would love to see Trump in control again that’s not the case anymore.

That isn’t a nuclear football, that’s just some guy carrying a briefcase.
