Trump praised the superiority of US military equipment, too, yet said he tries to make sure that equipment the USA sells overseas - even to allies - is not quite as good as that kept at home.

"As we give thanks for this holiday, I know I speak on behalf of all Americans when I say that we totally support you - in fact, we love you".
Among the equipment admired by Trump is the F-35 stealth fighter jet, which he recalled asking "Air Force guys" about once. "You can lose the war even if you have [an] overwhelming advantage - militarily, economically, technologically - if you don't recognize you are at war", cautioned Kasparov.
