President Trump Signs Defense Spending Bill

"Serving as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and working on behalf of America's courageous service members has been one of the greatest honors of my life".

Standing in front of soldiers and senior military leaders at Fort Drum in NY, U.S. President Donald Trump made no mention of Senator John McCain who has been one of the president's fiercest critics.

It also authorises a 2.6 percent pay raise for troops, the largest in almost a decade, as well as boost the size of the Navy and the ranks of the military by 15,600 active-duty troops.

"I've gotten to know her very well, and she is terrific", Trump said of McSally, after touting her resume as an Air Force veteran and the nation's first female fighter pilot to fly a mission in combat.

In the end, Congress decided on a measure that will essentially ban the U.S. government or anyone that wants to work with the United States government from using components from Huawei, ZTE, or a number of other Chinese communications companies. Trump said he had expressed that it would be near-impossible to make the trip to upstate NY because of other scheduling considerations. ZTE was nearly forced out of business after being accused of selling sensitive information to nations hostile to the US, namely Iran and North Korea, in violation of trade laws.

But RMC says Pogba has now put talk of a move to bed by vowing to stick around in Manchester until the end of the current campaign.

"We are going to strengthen our military like never ever before". An AP investigation documented broad failures of justice when military kids report incidents.

Trump said that Patton's words "still ring true", noting that the American military was the most powerful in the world. Schools and the armed services also must start tracking incidents - AP identified almost 700 over 10 years, but that was a certain undercount.

There had been concerns Trump might be tempted to slash the number of US soldiers on the peninsula as a cost-saving measure, but the bill prevents that. During his election campaign, Trump declared that McCain, who was a prisoner of war for more than five years in Vietnam, was not a war hero, and he has publicly and privately blamed McCain for submarining the Republican health care bill last year. He has not been in Washington since December. "I like people who weren't captured".

The Senate passed the bill in June with an 85-10 bipartisan vote.
