President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act Monday afternoon, approving a military spending budget of $717 billion in 2019 and a 2.6% pay raise for military personnel across the board.
The legislation -named after Senator John McCain- was officially signed into law by the Commander-in-Chief while he visited Fort Drum in New York.
“This authorization will give American war-fighters the firepower they need to win any conflict quickly and decisively," said the President. “We will replace aging tents, aging planes, and ships with the most advanced and lethal technology every developed.”
“We are the most powerful. We are the best funded. We are the biggest, we are the strongest, we are the smartest,” the President told reporters.
