At a Friday night campaign rally in Pensacola, Florida, Donald Trump addressed modernizing the missile defense system and expanding the number of U.S. naval ships. Trump explains how the U.S. will respond to provocations from Iran: "they will be shot out of the water."
DONALD TRUMP: We're also going to pursue a state of the art missile defense, we need it. We will start modernizing our cruisers to provide the ballistic missile defense and if we don't have that and that capability -- this is the capability our nation needs -- as we expand our navy to the goal of the 350 ships which is about a 100 more than we have right now.
We will also procure additional modern destroyers that are designed to handle a missile defense mission in coming years. And, by the way, with Iran, when they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats and they make gestures at our people that they shouldn't be allowed to make they will be shot out of the water. Okay, believe me.
