Trump says military 'bigger, better, stronger' at USS Gerald R. Ford commissioning

Trump says military 'bigger, better, stronger' at USS Gerald R. Ford commissioning

The map of the world stands for the ship's global presence, and the blue-and-gold color scheme is for the president's college years at the University of MI and Yale.

Trump, who is commander in chief of the USA armed forces, was traveling to Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia on Saturday to preside over a ceremony during which the USS Ford, the first member of the next generation of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, will be welcomed to the fleet with the words: "Man our ship and bring her to life". The president earlier in the week said in an interview that he regretted appointing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and warned the special counsel leading a probe into Russia's campaign meddling not to investigate unrelated dealings by his family business.

Trump will deliver the ceremony's principal address, marking his second visit to the new carrier since his inauguration. "God bless this ship and all who serve it", said trump. Taken on her own, the Ford is the most expensive ship of any kind ever built, with a construction cost of almost $13 billion.

The U.S.S. Gerald R. Ford is billed as the world's most technologically advanced nuclear powered aircraft carrier.

The vessel's commissioning will begin the planned phased replacement of the US Navy's current Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. Compared to Nimitz-class carriers, the Gerald R. Ford-class carriers have more than 23 new or modified systems.

Mr Trump said at the event in Norfolk, Virginia: "I hereby place United States Ship Gerald R Ford in commission".

Audi Pulls Offensive Car Ad in China
I suspect that one or two people at Audi China and its ad agency will soon be undergoing a rigorous inspection themselves. On Tencent Holdings' popular chat app WeChat, almost half-a-million people mentioned "Audi second hand car" on Tuesday.

The Ford, built by Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc., isn't expected to be ready for combat deployment for at least four years, having yet to complete its navigation and cyber-security inspections.

The Navy also said it would spend $43 billion in total to build the first three ships in the class, including the USS John F. Kennedy and the USS Enterprise. "This has led to deferred maintenance, a lack of investment in new equipment and technology and a shortfall in military readiness".

"I enter into operation an aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford. You going to goddamned steam, the digital costs hundreds of millions of dollars more money and it's no good", Trump said.

The USS Ford is the first member of the next generation of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers.

The US is unmatched in its naval power, with the Ford becoming the 20th commissioned carrier in their fleet - while the rest of the world has just 21 between them. The Navy said the cost overruns and construction delays were due to the carrier's cutting-edge technology.
