Five challenges facing Trump’s military
By Rebecca Kheel - 11/25/18 07:30 AM EST

President Trump often boasts of U.S. military might, taking credit for restoring its former glory.

“It’s now a new force, a great force,” Trump said at a recent speech at the Washington Marine barracks. “We have the finest equipment, the finest planes, the finest missiles and rockets, ships.

“Some are being built. Just gave out a tremendous order for brand-new F-35s — fighter jets. They’re stealth. You can’t see them,” he added, reviving his often-repeated falsehood that F-35s are actually invisible.

But the military is facing a number of challenges, from continued efforts to restore readiness after years of Washington’s budget dysfunction to work on fulfilling Trump orders such as standing up Space Force.

Here are five challenges facing Trump’s military:

The notion that our military is or has been subpar is preposterous. Compared to who? Nobody is even close.
