The order, which the White House is preparing for Trump's signature, would require the Pentagon to produce new military options within 30 days, the New York Times reported.

During a visit to the Pentagon, on January 27, 2017, the U.S. President Trump has signed a new order to increase and start a great rebuild of United States armed forces developing a plan for new planes, new ships, new resources and new tools for U.S. soldiers.

Under the order, Defense Secretary James Mattis will have to prepare a 30-day “readiness review” that assesses training, equipment maintenance, munitions, modernization and infrastructure, and identifies actions to be taken this year.

The second action establishes new vetting measures “to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America -- we don’t want them here,” the president said. “We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats that our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit into our country those who will support our country and love, deeply, our people.”

Donlad Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin agreed in a telephone call to establish "real coordination" against the Islamic State group in Syria, according to the Kremlin.
