Donald Trump to release findings of missile defense review: Report

January 16, 2019

President Trump is expected to visit the Pentagon Thursday to release a report on the state of the nation’s missile defense preparedness.

Bloomberg reported that Mr. Trump will deliver the findings of the Missile Defense Review, which was completed in October. The review is a broad look at U.S. missile defense capabilities and is expected to be included in the administration’s fiscal 2020 budget request to Congress.

Industry leaders and non-proliferation groups have been awaiting the report, which could call for more spending on new missile defense technologies and changes in U.S. missile defense strategies for Russia and China.
