President Trump Signs Defense Spending Bill

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.

Later on, Trump has acknowledged McCain as a war hero, but he never apologized in his interviews. If each of the 77 fighter jets uses up just one tank, that would amount to more than 1.4 million pounds of fuel. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare brain cancer over a year ago is still the victim of Trump's attacks and insults.

Debates within the Republican Party had observers confused about how hard the government would come down on Chinese manufacturers, particularly given Donald Trump's role in both shouting down Chinese companies while simultaneously publicly supporting lifting trade bans on ZTE specifically.

"One of our wonderful senators said thumbs down at 2 o'clock in the morning", he said to a smattering of boos.

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.
