If you happen to have a look at all of the army assist that we’ve given Israel for the reason that founding of the Jewish State, that is about 85% of that [which we gave] over a 70 yr interval. We’re all apprehensive in regards to the new plane service Gerald Ford [at] $12 billion; the most costly plane service in historical past.

“There’s something terribly flawed with our army. I don’t know whether or not it’s their distraction due to wokeness, as they undergo the ranks and rosters attempting to weed out potential, I don’t know, ‘supremacists’ — or they’re simply incompetent, or they’re too apprehensive in regards to the revolving door of going out and in from protection contractor boards, however we’d like a bipartisan investigation of our high brass and the system,” he mentioned.
