McCain said in a statement he was "humbled" the bill was named after him, adding that it will address "a growing array of threats".

About 17 percent of America's $4 trillion federal budget goes to the military, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The president and vice were greeted on the tarmac by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro), who formally invited Trump to visit the Army base back in March. I like people that weren't captured, OK?

"I have to tell you about Elise", Trump said.

Predictably, Congress's bipartisan support - the bill was supported by 40 Democrats in the Senate and 139 Democrats in the House - for and Trump's subsequent signature of one of the largest military spending bills in American history was not met with the usual consternation and hand-wringing from pundits about how the US can afford such funding. The H.R. 5515 bill was named after the longtime Arizona senator and chair of the Senate Armed Service Committee.

Trump called it the "the most significant investment in our military, and our war fighters in modern history", but did not make any reference to McCain's military service or decadeslong career fighting for the Pentagon budget.

The raise is the largest pay increase for uniformed personnel in nine years.

Mr Trump signed the law at the US Army's Fort Drum base in upstate NY on Monday on his way back to Washington after a 12-day working vacation at his golf club in New Jersey.
