US President Boasts of a Stronger America while Commissioning 100,000-ton Aircraft Carrier

  • US President Donald Trump, while commissioning United State of America’s newest aircraft carrier - the USS Gerald R. Ford, boasted about American military might by referring the carrier as “a 100,000-ton message to the world". Trump (who was joined by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis) went on to say during his speech at naval base in Norfolk, Virginia that the $12.9 billion warship will create fear among its enemies as they will know that a strong America is coming. He also criticized erstwhile Obama administration for lack of investment in new military technology as well as “a shortfall in military readiness”.
