Trump Signs Bill Named For McCain, Doesn't Mention Him

President Trump Signs Defense Spending Bill

Speaking to troops at Fort Drum, N.Y., Mr. Trump said the new National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2019 is "the most significant investment in our military, and in our warfighters, in a generation".

"No enemy on earth can match the strength, courage and skill of the American armed forces", Trump said.

The bill also authorizes billions of dollars for military construction, including family housing. It's the earliest in the year that Congress has completed an NDAA in more than 20 years.

Fort Drum is the largest single-site employer in NY state, and its 10th Mountain Division has been the most deployed unit in the Army since 2001.

Leaders of USA intelligence agencies have said they are concerned that ZTE, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and some other Chinese companies are beholden to the Chinese government or Community Party, raising the risk of espionage.

The president also took some time to chat with three Army soldiers, their faces covered in camouflage paint, who took part in the exercise.

The NDAA does strengthen the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which reviews proposed foreign investments to weigh whether they threaten national security.

The measure also addresses child-on-child sexual assault at USA military bases worldwide. I said, 'I don't wan't to take her call.' She wanted me to be here. "We must have American dominance in space".

The new Programmable Hyperspectral Seawater Scanner (PHYSS) detects red tide in seawater with higher resolution than ever before. The FWC said in its report that fish kills and breathing issues in humans can occur when levels reach 10,000 cells per liter.

Trump made his comments before signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act, a bill that boosts pay for military personnel by 2.6 percent and provides big increases in spending on military equipment.

"I'm proud the NDAA is now law & humbled Congress chose to designate it in my name".

According to the Vice President's office, Pence will travel separately from Trump to Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield at Fort Drum and arrive at about 1:30 p.m. President Trump is expected to arrive about 30 minutes later.

The measure authorizes $500 million for the co-development and co-production of missile defense systems with Israel.

Trump added that a strong military requires a robust US economy, which he said helps provide funding for new equipment, pay increases for soldiers and reduces the unemployment rate for veterans.

The law also bars the US from selling F-35 fighter jets to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey. Mr. Trump blasted her on Twitter as a "lowlife" and "not smart".

The administration is also angered by Turkey's detaining of a US pastor on terrorism charges.

"I want to say, very strongly, there is no better place than right here at Fort Drum to celebrate its passage", the president said.
