Trump dines with top aides at his Virginia club

The freshly painted Gerald R. Ford shines at night in the empty dry dock waiting to meet water for the first time

According to Fox News report, "The USS Gerald R. Ford is $13 billion futuristic ship complete with a huge flight deck and a new electromagnetic system to launch aircraft".

The Navy plans to spend $43 billion developing and building the three new Ford-class ships-Ford, the future USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79), and the future USS Enterprise (CVN 80).

The new carrier will be the flagship of the new class of "super carriers", the first new class in 40 years and the most expensive warships ever built.

"It's been a very, very bad period of time for our military, that is why were reached a deal to secure additional $20 billion for defense this year and it's going up and why I ask Congress for another $54 billion for next year", said Mr. Trump.

"There is no one, absolutely no one that would be prouder of the commissioning of this ship than the president, Gerald R. Ford", Bales said.

Construction of the aircraft carrier began on November 13, 2009, just under three years after Ford's death on December 26, 2006.

The vessel completed sea trials in April but still will go through a battery of tests and workups at sea before becoming ready for deployment, work that is expected to cost almost $780 million and take more than four years to complete, congressional auditors said this month. After military service, Mr Ford was elected to the House of Representatives, serving MI until he was tapped by then-president Richard Nixon to become vice president. While the carriers' technical specifications will be similar to their Nimitz counterparts, there are many improvements aimed at increasing their combat capabilities.

Trump was among a guest list that included Defense Secretary James Mattis, Acting Navy Secretary Sean Stackley, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and members of Congress.

He'll be accompanied by a brand new stage based upon Metro City, which you can see for yourselves in the trailer embedded above. It looks like Abigail will be the next character coming to " Street Fighter 5 " via the season 2 downloadable content (DLC).

A 21 gun salute started the commissioning ceremony of the USS Gerald R. Ford on Saturday July 22, 2017, at Naval Station Norfolk.

"We will give our military the tools you need to prevent war", Mr. Trump said in March.

The technology of the USS Gerald R. Ford, albeit impressive McCormack said, will never be better than the crew.

This article was released by the United States Navy.

However, the carrier's commander said he is confident in the new technology.

Despite delays to the Ford's delivery, the Navy said that the Ford-class carriers will yield a $4 billion reduction per ship cost as compared to its predecessor.

The Ford was built at Newport News Shipbuilding, the giant Navy contractor in Virginia.
