VIDEO: U.S. President Donald Trump observes military demonstration, signs the National Defense Authorization Act.
๐Ÿ‘‰ U.S. President Donald Trump signed a $716 billion defense policy bill Monday (August 13) that authorizes military spending and includes watered-down controls on U.S. government contracts with China's ZTE Corp and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.
Trump signed the law at the U.S. Army's Fort Drum base in upstate New York on his way back to Washington after a 12-day working vacation at his golf club in New Jersey. The bill was named for one of Trump's political critics, the ailing U.S. Senator John McCain of Arizona, but he did not mention McCain's name.
Trump said the bill "is the most significant investment in our military and our war-fighters in modern history."
Trump has lifted an earlier ban on U.S. companies selling to ZTE, allowing China's second-largest telecommunications equipment maker to resume business and putting him at odds with both Republican and Democratic lawmakers.
Prior to the ceremony Trump watched an air assault demonstration by U.S. troops at Fort Drum.
