White House weighs shorter extension of nuclear arms pact with Russia via @politico 1/
As usual @BryanDBender knows what is happening before most. He was kind enough to ask for my take. The best take is it is a good sign the Admin in considering any extension and real follow on. That instinct should be encouraged. 2/
The less generous take is Trump hates all Obama deals and person appointed to negotiate a new groundbreaking agreement has a long record of opposing all arms control. To be blunt, the Trump team has little talent and track record that suggests they could negotiate anything. 3/
A short term extension on the promise of a new deal will be seen as a cynical attempt to foreclose further extensions by a new Admin. My understanding is that New START can be extended multiple times as long as they don't total more than 5 years altogether. end/
