Trump claims Cuomo won't challenge him for the presidency

Trump Signs Bill Named for Sen. McCain, Doesn't Mention Him

After the bill-signing Trump made a reference to McCain at a political fundraiser in Utica, New York, criticising him - as he does repeatedly - for voting against a bill to repeal parts of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare reform law previous year.

US President Donald Trump watched an air assault demonstration held at Fort Drum in NY, where US Air Force pilots exhibited mind-boggling stunts and showcased their military might.

"It is truly an honor to welcome you to Fort Drum, home of the historic 10th Mountain Division, the most deployed unit in the U.S. Army since 9/11", Stefanik said.

The bill also authorizes billions of dollars for military construction, including family housing.

The bill is titled the "John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019".

The bill was named for one of Trump's political critics, the ailing US Senator John McCain of Arizona, but he did not mention McCain's name.

Trump said that Patton's words "still ring true", noting that the American military was the most powerful in the world.

"We are going to strengthen our military like never ever before".

The president also said the measure will help to create the new U.S. Space Force, which he said is necessary to counter military moves by China and others in orbit.

"The veterans' unemployment rate recently reached its lowest level in almost 20 years", he said.

What just happened? The long-running battle between ZTE and the USA government may have reached a conclusion.

Thus, the bill doesn't ban all ZTE and Huawei gear, just components that can be used to view or route data.

The NDAA also includes substantial language aimed at forcing the military into better reporting of aspects of their assorted to wars to Congress.

The measure also addresses child-on-child sexual assault at US military bases worldwide.

Among the changes, the bill creates new legal protections for students at Department of Defense Education Activity schools and requires the school system and the Pentagon to develop new policies for responding to reports on bases more generally. The president has frequently insulted McCain, a Vietnam veteran and prisoner of war, even as the senator battles an aggressive form of brain cancer.
