In my opinion even if USA would go to war with Russia, even if it would escalate outside of Syria Putin wouldn't use nukes knowing that Trump might retaliate fully and launch everything at them. I also don't think that Trump has the only say when it comes to first strike. I don't think that Pentagon would love the idea of scorched USA and dying in the bunkers. Also there are people in missile silos that could simply disobey the order to launch knowing what that means.
