Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said Thursday that Donald Trump will be "very cautious about nuclear weapons" and in "discussions with him, there is no rashness with him about the use of nuclear weapons."

"He's talking about a deterrent factor that is always available to every president — and he cannot take that off the table," Sessions, the Alabama Republican who is advising Trump on national security issues, told Erin Burnett on CNN.

"He will be very cautious about the nuclear-weapon issue."

Trump has come under attack on the issue of nuclear weapons — especially after MSNBC host Joe Scarborough shared an anecdote Wednesday in which the presidential candidate recently asked an adviser why the U.S. could not choose to use its arsenal.

Sessions, 69, is in his fourth Senate term. He sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

"Nobody takes nuclear weapons off the table," he told Burnett. "Barack Obama doesn't and no president takes them off the table ever.

"A nuclear war cannot be won; a nuclear war is a disaster. It must be avoided. There's no doubt about."
