According to washingtonfeed:
The US NAVY’S GOING CRAZY about what Donald Trump just did. No president has done something like that in 50 years.
Fox News is reporting that Trump that in response to trump’s demand for more ships the Navy proposed a massive 355 ship building plan.
The biggest since the cold war.
And it’s sorely needed. Just today, Iran taking advantage of Obama withdrawing our aircraft carriers from the mid-east threatened a Navy destroyer.
The Navy’s Force Structure Assessment, revised after Trump’s demand, calls for building an aircraft carrier built in Virginia, 16 large surface warships in Maine and Mississippi, and 18 attack submarines in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Virginia.
It also requests multiple amphibious assault ships, expeditionary docks and support ships.
Matthew Paxton, president of the Shipbuilders Council of America, said,
“Russia and China are going to continue to build up their navies. The Navy, more than any of the services, is our forward presence. We’re going to need this Navy.”
