Trump helps commission USS Gerald R. Ford, newest aircraft carrier

"I was with you four months ago and I knew that I had to be here today and I told you I'd be back to congratulate you and the crew and everybody involved in commissioning the newest, largest and most advanced aircraft carrier in the history of this world", Trump said Saturday. Compared to Nimitz-class carriers, the new Ford class vessels have more than 23 new or modified systems. "May God bless and guide this warship and all who shall sail in her".

President Donald Trump said Saturday that our new state-of-the art aircraft carrier is "A 100,000-ton message to the world" of American military might.

"The Sailors aboard today are among our nation's finest", said McCormack.

"For those in the world who wish to terrorize us here in the USA and overseas, those who wish to challenge our shores, those who challenge our values...", Richardson said, "this is not a day of celebration for them".

He criticized what he called a lack of investment in new military technology and "a shortfall in military readiness" under the previous administration.

The crew has also played a key role in helping numerous commanders get up to speed on the intricacies that differentiate the Ford from the Navy's other carriers. Released from active duty in February 1946, Ford remained in the Naval Reserve until 1963.

"It's been a little bit of a fire hose to the mouth trying to absorb all the information I need to absorb, but it's been an incredible experience", said Gaut, who joined the ship almost a month and a half ago and has never been part of the pre-commissioning process for another ship.

The CNV 78 aircraft carrier boasts almost two dozen new technologies not present on older carriers - including a more spacious flight deck, an electromagnetic aircraft launch system and advanced arresting gear to better recover incoming aircraft. Ford is expected to be in operation in 2020.
