Trump WH Makes It Official: Bigger Navy, Air Force & ‘End’ To Sequestration

WASHINGTON: Soon after President Donald Trump took the oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution,” the White House posted two documents declaring they would boost the size of the Navy and Air Force, increase our offensive and defensive cyber capabilities and end sequestration.

In the first document, Making Our Military Strong Again, the Trump Administration declares that the U.S. “cannot allow other nations to surpass our military capability” and will “pursue the highest level of military readiness.”

While few specifics were offered, the document does say the US will “develop a state-of-the-art missile defense system to protect against missile-based attacks from states like Iran and North Korea.”
