Trump Announces Expansion Of Missile Defenses, Warns About Inbound Caravans Of “Unknown People” [VIDEO]

The New York Times reports:

President Trump announced Thursday the results of a missile defense review that he said would update a decades-old system and protect the United States from emerging threats — adopting a Cold War stance while also promoting futuristic ambitions with his much-touted Space Force.

At the Pentagon, Mr. Trump said the strategy would help deter hostile states — including Iran, which he said “is a much different country” now than when he took office. “Our goal is simple: to ensure that we can detect and destroy any missile launched against the United States anywhere, any time, any place.”

Known as the Missile Defense Review, the strategy was originally planned for release last year, but was delayed. The changes mark the first update to the policy since a 2010 review by the Obama administration.
