Trump Signs Executive Actions On Military, ‘Vetting Measures’

Donald Trump will make America safe again! Mr. Trump signed two executive actions during a press conference after the swearing-in of his new defence secretary, James Mattis,

“I’m signing an executive action to begin a great rebuilding of the armed services of the United States, developing a plan for new planes, new ships, new resources and new tools for our men and women in uniform,” Trump said after the swearing-in the retired Marine general. “I’m very proud to be doing that.”

President Donald Trump has capped a whirlwind first week in office by signing two executive actions to provide new tools and resources for the US military and establish new “vetting measures” he said were aimed at keeping out “radical Islamic terrorists”

Specific details of the actions were not available at pixel time. But Mr. Trump provided brief remarks on each.

The first action is meant to “begin a great rebuilding of the armed services of the United States,” Mr. Trump said – “developing a plan for new planes, new ships, new resources and new tools for our men and women in uniform.”

The second – and likely more controversial, given the lightning rod Mr. Trump became for his comments on immigration and plans for “extreme vetting” of individuals during the campaign – deals with “establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the Untied States of America,” he said.

“We want to ensure we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas,” he said.

Our military strength will be questioned by no one, but neither will our dedication to peace,” he added. “We do want peace.”

Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. Army, the largest branch of the military, pink-slipped tens of thousands of soldiers in the name of budget constraints — including many career-military troops who endured combat and family separations during years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cuts have reduced the Army to pre-World War II levels. (video below)
