U.S. military branches have begun to plan for the expansion Trump promised during his campaign, per Fox News.

The President renewed this promise last week at a press conference.

Check it out:

The president made rebuilding the military a centerpiece of his campaign, and sent a fresh signal of his intentions with his choice for national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster – who for months has sounded the alarm about the declining state of the U.S. Army.

“We are outranged and outgunned by many potential adversaries … [and] our army in the future risks being too small to secure the nation,” McMaster told a Senate Armed Services subcommittee last April. Trump’s decision to tap McMaster brings a vocal advocate for boosting the Armed Forces into his inner circle.

President Obama cut defense spending pretty significantly over the course of his time in office, so this will be a refreshing moment for military officials when Trump’s promises materialize.
