President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order that will direct a review into whether United States military suppliers would have the ability to keep the military stocked during wartime.

Nextgov reports that the Pentagon will lead the multi-agency review, which also will include the Departments of Homeland Security, Commerce, Energy, and Labor.

Peter Navarro, who works as the director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, told Nextgov the robust review is overdue.

The project is "one of the most significant presidentially led actions on the state of the defense industrial base since Dwight Eisenhower was in office," Navarro said.

Navarro added that as part of the executive order, Trump would receive an unclassified report nine months after the order is signed.

The GOP is pushing to increase defense spending over the next several years. A budget plan released this week calls for cuts to several facets of the government, but increases in military expenditures.

A recent report, meanwhile, suggested that the U.S. and England might not need a robust Navy moving forward and instead could consider more cost-effective ways to keep their countries safe.
