Trump's expected impact on South Mississippi's shipbuilding industry

Trump has called for the biggest military buildup since Ronald Reagan was president. Recently, the Secretary of the Navy and former Mississippi Governor Ray Mabus recommended for the Navy's ship fleet to be increased to 355. Current Governor Phil Bryant is even more optimistic in Trump's buildup plan.

"He's talking about a 600 ship Navy," Bryant said. "We're a little under 300 right now. Just imagine that and if we get a portion of that at Ingalls the jobs that will be created building the most advanced warships in the world right here is something that we're eager to do."
