UNDER EVERY PRESIDENT NUKES ARE ON THE TABLE.. in fact JFK and Russia were NEAR playing over a CERTAIN period of 13 days in the 1960s
Every situation is different. The first use of nukes would depend on the leadership at the time. The US war plan in eastern Europe had "theater nukes" in their battle plan in order to stop what was at the time an overwhelming manpower advantage for the eastern bloc. The Russians had a defensive "ring" around Moscow and other cities that were SAMs with nuclear warheads.
Trumps drive to get the NATO members up to date on their military spending has had a effect of the way the Russian military, which is a fraction of what it was back in the day, has acted in the region. Some think he's just bullying but the idea is to get the NATO allies in shape to actually fight instead of running for cover because they don't know how to fight.

You obviously don't know how the Cuban Missile Crisis was resolved.
The result was that the nukes the Russians have already placed in Cuba and those on the way were returned to Russia and the Us removed Pershing Artillery missiles (SRBMs) That's oversimplistic but the net result was disastrous for Cuba. The Russians quickly lost interest in Cuba and when Gorbi came to power and proceeded to dismantle the agreements between Russia and Cuba it was all over for them. Cuba returned to third world shithole status.

lets not forget the Persing Missiles had become Obsolete due to submarine launched missiles.
