Trump signs defense bill with watered-down ZTE sanctions

President Trump Signs Defense Spending Bill Trump: Troops to see ‘biggest pay increase’ in a decade

The US president signed the $716bn defence policy bill authorising military spending at the US army's Fort Drum base in upstate NY on Monday.

President Donald Trump signed a defense bill named after Sen. 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.

At a ceremony at the U.S. Army's Fort Drum base in New York, Trump touted the bill as "the most significant investment" in the country's military in modern history.

Fort Drum Army base is home to almost 20,000 active military members.

"We are proudly giving our troops the biggest pay increase in a decade", Trump said. He name-checked the members of the Congress such as Republican Elise Stefanik, who held a brief speech as a district representative whereas Trump also mentioned Martha McSally, Dan Donovan, Don Bacon and Joe Wilson.

The impact for government agencies and contractors who who now use Huawei and ZTE technology could be massive as it comes into effect over the next two years claim analysts.

The bill for the fiscal year 2019 was named after Republican Senator John Mccain, a former Republican presidential nomine and one of Trump's leading critics within the party.

"We are going to strengthen our military like never ever before".

The two men have always been fierce critics of each other, with McCain calling Trump's supporters "crazies" in 2015 and Trump retaliating by questioning whether McCain, who was subjected to torture in a Vietnamese prison camp, is really a "war hero" because "he was captured". "We know the real truth, but I won't say it today".

An Associated Press investigation this spring documented broad failures of justice when military kids report incidents.

"I have to tell you about Elise", Trump said.

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.

Rep. Elise Stefanik invited President Trump to Fort Drum this past spring.

The 2019 NDAA passed Congress with bipartisan support, although New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, voted against it.
