The “nuclear football” exists for two key reasons, Stephen Schwartz, an expert on the football and a nonresident senior fellow at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, previously told Insider.
One, the briefcase “is the physical representation of the presidential authority” to order the use of nuclear weaponry, which only the president has, Schwartz said.
Two, as a product of Cold War tensions with the Soviets, the football exists because “we’ve been afraid that a surprise nuclear attack could catch us off guard and preclude any sort of retaliation.”
The emergency satchel contains communication tools, codes, and options for nuclear war. The president also carries, typically on his person, a card with authentication codes known as the “biscuit.” These codes are used together with the football to launch a nuclear strike.
The president can also order a strike from fixed command centers if needed.
The vice president is followed by a back-up football, as was highlighted when rioters came very close to former Vice President Mike Pence’s football during the riots at the Capitol. The vice president also carries a biscuit with inactive codes. These tools are for rare situations in which the president is incapacitated or killed.
When presidential power was transferred to Harris on Friday, her codes were temporarily activated, giving her presidential authority to use the football or other means to launch nuclear weapons should such action be deemed necessary, Schwartz explained on Twitter….
