A strong message from the United States to the rest of the world has just been delivered with the country's President Donald Trump commissioning the Aircraft Carrier USS GERALD R. FORD worth $13 billion! That's some massive amount of money. The new carrier is just one of United States' 11 Aircraft Carriers located around the world.
CNN quoted the US President as saying that it is "a 100,000-ton message to the world."
"Wherever this vessel cuts through the horizons, our allies will rest easy and our enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that America is coming and America is coming strong," says Trump.
This is coming after China launched the largest military warship in all Asia. On the new warship rests the docking point of several F-35 fighters jets.
Perhaps a strong message in a show of force to the North Korean government on its recent tests of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) which the United States and China in a combined venture have vehemently opposed.

The US Pacific Command "is prepared to fight tonight with the best technology of any force on the planet," Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the more than 340,000 US troops in the Pacific, said in a February speech.
