President Trump Signs the NDAA
President Trump has given his blessing to a potential multibillion-dollar sale of F-35s to Poland.
According to The Hill:
The Trump administration has formally notified Congress of a potential $6.5 billion sale of F-35 fighter jets to Poland.
Details of the sale, posted to the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) website on Wednesday, include 32 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft, equipment and support.
“This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of a NATO ally, which is an important force for political stability and economic progress in Europe,” according to the DSCA statement.
The release adds that the potential sale “will provide Poland with a credible defense capability to deter aggression in the region and ensure interoperability with U.S. forces.”
Poland is a major NATO ally that President Trump sent additional troops to in order to deter Russia in June.
