President Donald J. Trump speech 03/02/2017 aboard the USS Gerald R Ford, America's next generation air craft carrier.
Trump pledged to boost defense spending as he basked in the nation’s military might aboard a next-generation Naval aircraft carrier on Thursday.
The president also toured the carrier and met with sailors and military leaders. He saluted the sailors as he arrived on the carrier.
Wearing an olive green military jacket and blue ball cap, Trump vowed to mount one of the largest defense spending increases in history.
Hopefully it’s power we don’t have to use, but if we do, they’re in big, big trouble, Trump said.
Trump spoke from the Gerald R. Ford, a $12.9 billion warship that is expected to be commissioned this year after cost overruns and delays.
He touted his spending plans, saying he would provide the finest equipment in the world, and give the military the tools you need to prevent war.
