(Donald J. Trump, January 27, 2023)
45th President Donald Trump has released the following statement:
We must be able to defend our homeland, our allies, and our military assets around the world from the threat of hypersonic missiles, no matter where they are launched from. Just as President Trump rebuilt our military, President Trump will build a state-of-the-art next-generation missile defense shield to defend America from missile attack.
Under Joe Biden the world has become vastly more dangerous, and there is no greater danger than the deadly menace of nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles.
World War Three would be a catastrophe unlike any other. The best way to ensure that such a conflict ever happens is to be prepared with unmatched technology and unrivaled strength.
President Trump will work with Congress and our great military leaders to build a state-of-the-art, next generation missile defense shield, just as Israel is now protected by the Iron Dome.
America must have an impenetrable dome to protect our people.
President Trump rebuilt our military at a level that nobody thought possible, but we must take that further step.
