US Navy adds largest-ever warship: What does it mean for Asia?

The United States has just sent “a 100,000-ton message to the world,” says US President Donald Trump.
The message comes in the form of the aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford, a $13 billion behemoth commissioned into the US Navy’s fleet on Saturday.
“Wherever this vessel cuts through the horizons, our allies will rest easy and our enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that America is coming and America is coming strong,” Trump said.
Although the Ford’s deployments are far off and yet to be determined, it has officially joined a US military arsenal trying to stay supreme in the face of new challenges in an increasingly tense North Asia.
