2024 ELECTION/NATIONAL SECURITY: “After breezing through his usual lines about wanting to build a border wall and to ‘drill baby, drill’ for oil, former President Donald Trump has been adding a new refrain to his speeches — a promise to build something like Israel’s Iron Dome, but better and over the entire U.S.

‘We’ll build an Iron Dome over our country, a state-of-the-art missile defense shield, and it’s all made in the USA,’ Trump said Sunday at a rally in New Hampshire. ‘I think it’s time that we have one.'”

-Alex Seitz-Wald, “Trump has long promised a ‘beautiful’ wall. Now he’s pledging ‘the greatest dome ever.’,” nbcnews.com, January 23, 2024
