Expansion of US Navy


22 March 2017. President Donald Trump has stated that he wants to increase the size of the US military and has called for a major increase of the US Navy. This would be a long-term, billion-dollar program to build ships. Sounds like a larger version of the National Shipbuilding Strategy. And interesting to see that, much like in Canada, finding skilled labor for this massive project is going to be a problem. See 17 March 2017 article “Skilled Workers Needed to Build Trump’s Navy Vision,” available at http://www.marinelink.com/news/skilled-workers-needed423256
