Trump Signs $717 Bln Defense Bill

Trump Signs $717 Bln Defense Bill

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to join Trump for the event at this northern NY military base, which is home to the Army's 10th Mountain Division. Trump interacted with a group of soldiers and showered kudos for their dedication and hard work.

The bill was named for one of Trump's political critics, the ailing US Senator John McCain of Arizona, but he did not mention McCain's name.

The bill Donald Trump bragged about passing today is called the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019.

There had been concerns Trump might be tempted to slash the number of USA soldiers on the peninsula as a cost-saving measure, but the bill prevents that. Actually, Obama's first three defence budgets were larger when adjusted for inflation, according to Todd Harrison at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The Trump administration has criticized the Turkish government for what it says is the illegal detention of an American pastor over his alleged involvement in a 2016 coup attempt. "But if we ever did, nobody has a chance", he said.

National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) bars F-35 deliveries to Turkey until the Pentagon delivers a report within 90 days to the appropriate congressional defence committees.

While U.S. President Donald Trump has made a decision 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. That measure was seen as targeting China.

The returns were repatriated from North Korea last month under an agreement reached by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at their historic Singapore summit in June.

Apart from Turkey, the U.S., U.K., Italy, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Norway and Denmark are also present as participant members of the F-35 fighter jet program.
