Trump: In These Troubled Times, Our Navy Is the Smallest It’s Been Since World War I

‘After years of endless budget cuts that have impaired our defenses, I’m calling for one of the largest defense spending increases in history’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "Our Navy is now the smallest it has been since believe it or not, World War I. Don't worry, it will soon be the largest it's ever been. Don't worry. Think of that. Think of that.
(Cheering and applause)
In these troubled times, our Navy is the smallest it's been since World War I. That's a long time ago. In fact, I just spoke with Navy and industry leaders and have discussed my plans to undertake a major expansion of our entire Navy fleet, including having the 12-carrier Navy we need.
(Applause)
We also need more aircraft, modernized capabilities, and greater force levels."
