Trump: US to bring its military to unprecedented level
The United States will rebuild its military to a level it’s never been, US President Donald Trump said as he arrived at the Pentagon yesterday for a meeting to discuss military strategy.
"We’re rebuilding our military, we’re bringing it to a level it’s never been," the President said. "As you know its been depleted over the last long period of time and when we finish there won’t be anything like it. We need that now more than almost any time in the past."
Trump spoke as the Pentagon a day before Defense Secretary James Mattis is set to unveil the administration’s national defense strategy, and just weeks before DoD sends its fiscal year 2019 budget request to Capitol Hill, the Washington Examiner reported.
