Trump Gaining Ground With Majority of Military

Republican Presidential Nominee, Donald Trump now leads Hillary Clinton 55 percent to her 36 percent – among likely voters who now serve or who have served in the United States military based on the latest NBC Weekly Election Tracking Poll. This online poll was conducted from August 29 through September 4. Despite many controversial statements relating to war veteran Sen. McCain and Trump’s criticism of the Khan family, Trump has spent some time working hard to secure the support of veterans. In fact, 88 retired generals and admirals signed a letter backing Trump to reverse the “hollowing |away” of the U.S. Military. Many of our armed service members may not be confident in either Clinton or Trump’s abilities to become America’s commander in chief, however the majority of 53% are more confident in Trump.

Good News ahead for the Military! Trump announced that he will expand the Army to 540,000 active-duty troops from its current 480,000, increase the Marine Corps from 23 to 36 battalions – or as many as 10,000 more Marines – boost the Navy from 276 to 350 ships and submarines, and raise Air Force tactical aircraft from 1,100 to 1,200. Trump said those numbers were based on assessments by the conservative Heritage Foundation and other groups. Heritage said in a report that it looked at the capacity needed to handle two major wars to determine its force-size recommendations. Trump said he would bolster the development of missile defenses and cyber capabilities. He made no mention of U.S. nuclear forces already in the midst of a modernization effort that will cost an estimated $1 trillion over 30 years.
