The Trump administration is planning to tell Russian leaders that it is exiting a major nuclear arms treaty.

The New York Times reports the President wants to exit the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty which Russia has repeatedly violated in recent years.

Don Jensen is a resident fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations at Johns Hopkins University and previously helped negotiate the treaty... and conducted inspections.

He tells KCBS Radio anchor Jon Bristow the changing relationship between the two countries has made the treaty much less relevant than it used to be.
