US President signs US$717 billion defense bill for FY2019

Trump hits the media in speech to troops

Each year, Congress passes a new National Defense Authorization Act to set military spending levels for the year ahead. President Donald Trump did not.

But, as The Intercept's Alex Emmons has noted, the $82 billion military spending increase alone authorized by the 2019 NDAA could easily pay for Sen.

About 400 military personnel flanked the podium at Ft.

When there wasn't much of a response from the crowd of soldiers, who belong to the Army's 10th Mountain Division (the most deployed division in the Army), Trump then said, "What's going on here?" The military will also be allowed to bring on almost 16,000 additional troops, spread across active duty and reserves. And next year, already approved, we have $716 billion to give you the finest planes and ships and tanks and missiles anywhere on Earth.

While U.S. President Donald Trump has chose to delay delivery of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets to Turkey, it is well worth remembering that Turkish firm Ayesaş is the sole supplier of two major components of the Lockheed Martin aircraft. The bill provides no money for Trump's requested Space Force but authorizes the military parade he wants in Washington in November. That measure was seen as targeting China. "They've given me rundowns". I hate to tell you.

Russian Federation has said it did not interfere, contrary to the USA intelligence community's findings. There was no suggestion that Brennan has leaked classified information.

The Bill was named after Senator John McCain, 81, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee who, while fighting brain cancer at his home in Arizona, has become one of Mr Trump's most outspoken critics in Congress.

Trump signed the bill during a visit to Fort Drum, New York, where he was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, Deputy Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan and the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, reports The Hill.

For example, Mr. Trump also declared that he could bypass a provision in the bill that extended restrictions on certain bilateral military-to-military cooperation between the United States and Russian Federation.

He said the annual defense policy bill has raised separation-of-powers concerns by presidents dating back to at least Ronald Reagan. Instead, he recounts in detail how McCain voted against the Senate Republican plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act 13 months ago.
