Dec 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump called for the expansion of the United States' nuclear capabilities until the world "comes to its senses," but gave no other details in a tweet on Thursday.

"The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes," Trump said in the post on Twitter. Representatives for his transition team could not be immediately reached for comment.
