‘Digital. What’s digital?’: Donald Trump tells Navy to use ‘goddamned steam’ for catapult – Telegraph.co.uk

“And I said – and now they want to buy more aircraft carriers … I said what system are you going to be – ‘Sir, we’re staying with digital.’

“I said, ‘No you’re not. [You’re] going to goddamned steam,’ the digital costs hundreds of millions of dollars more money and it’s no good.”

A Pentagon official said Mr Trump’s comments surprised defence officials and were inaccurate.

“You can see elements of reality in what he said, but I think he may have spoken without having all of the information in front of him,” the official told the Washington Post.

“I think he either has time-late information, or the information he has is not correct.”
