President Trump is a man of action plain and simple. While Obama and Biden and Hillary would prefer to sit through endless meetings full of horribly boring speeches that say nothing, Trump wants the best intel from the best people and he makes decisions.
He doesn’t waffle like our past weak leaders. He chooses and moves on not looking back but looking forward.
As a new report from VOA News makes clear Trump is not afraid to make moves to keep us safe.
According to sources, Trump is sending a third aircraft carrier strike force to the western Pacific region. This hasn’t been done in a long long time. Concentrating forces like this in one theater of war, it’s a message the world cannot ignore.
The move is a clear warning to North Korea who has been ramping up their ballistic missile and nuclear programs.
Trump is sending the USS Nimitz, one of the world’s largest warships to join two other supercarriers, the USS Carl Vinson and the USS Ronald Reagan.
Remember, we have at least 13 aircraft carrier strike groups. Russia has one that travels with two tugboats because the damn armada keeps breaking down. China has 1 carrier strike group.
To repeat we have at least 13 and these weapons are the key to defeating a far off enemy because of their dual ability – air and sea. The give America control of the skies anywhere in the globe which is a huge advantage.

At the same time, Trump is ordering a test of our missile defense system. We have the ability – not 100% reliable – to shoot down an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Let’s pray we never have to use it.
But with Trump, we have a leader who will put pressure on our allies and enemies and that will only benefit America.
