Trump States New US Defense Chief A 'Man Of Total Action'

President Donald Trump ordered members of his Cabinet and the Joint Chiefs of Staff Saturday to begin a 30-day review of the nation's strategy to combat ISIS, as he seeks to intensify the USA campaign against the extremist group that holds swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria.

"Within 30 days, a preliminary draft of the Plan to defeat ISIS shall be submitted to the President by the Secretary of Defense", the memorandum says.

The Joint Chiefs will have to present options for the destruction of ISIS to Mr. Trump within 30 days.

This plan should contain "identification of new coalition partners in the fight against ISIS and policies to empower coalition partners to fight ISIS and its affiliates", the document reads.

In addition, the USA military maintains a hotline connection to Russian forces, who also are fighting in Syria, in an effort to prevent accidental conflict between the two sides.

Going deeper, one of the options could be deploying more Apache helicopters - one of the most advanced of its kind and used by other militaries around the world like Israel and Egypt - as well as giving the military "broader authority" during combat, officials who weren't authorized to discuss the matter told the website.

Trump's visit to the Defence Department's headquarters will start the conversation over how to fulfill his pledge to eradicate radical Islamic terrorism "completely from the face of the Earth".

Trump had proposed increasing the Army to 540,000, up about 65,000; the Marine Corps to 36 battalions, up from 24; the Navy to 350 surface ships and submarines from the current 280, the number of Air Force fighter aircraft to 1,200 from from what he pegged at 1,113; and developing a state-of-the-art missile system.

Trump also signed an executive order that bans administratoin officials from ever lobbying the US on behalf of a foreign government.

"It's a two year ban now and it's got full of loopholes and this is a five year ban", he said.
