On an ultimate security issue, defense of the U.S. homeland against an incoming missile attack, President Trump seems up to any such challenge. Homeland 411 reports on six changes in the nation’s missile defense strategy that the president announced in an address at the Pentagon on Jan. 17.
“All over, foreign adversaries, competitors, and rogue regimes are steadily enhancing their missile arsenals,” Trump said. “They’re increasing their lethal strike capabilities, and they’re focused on developing long-range missiles that could reach targets within the United States.”
“With ground-based systems, Trump said the plan calls for 20 ground-based interceptors at Fort Greely, Alaska, along with new missile detection capability.
“The U.S. will now adjust its posture to also defend against any missile strikes, including cruise and hypersonic missiles,” Trump added. “And we are, by the way, very advanced also on hypersonic technology and missiles.”
With all that’s going on in his affairs, it’s good that President Trump is keeping abreast of ultimate dangers to the nation as well. Truly, that’s an understatement.
