US President Donald Trump is expected to sign an ER (executive order) that will direct a review into whether United States military suppliers would have the ability to keep the military stocked during wartime.

Nextgov reports that the Pentagon will lead the multi-agency review, which also will include the Departments of Homeland Security, Commerce, Energy, and Labor.

The project is “one of the most significant presidentially led actions on the state of the defense industrial base since Dwight Eisenhower was in office,” Mr. Navarro said.

Mr. Navarro added that as part of the ER, President Trump would receive an unclassified report 9 months after the order is signed.

 The GOP is pushing to increase defense spending over the next several years. A budget plan released this week calls for cuts to several facets of the government, but increases in military expenditures.
