Presidential Statements Supporting Missile Defense

President Donald Trump

“As part of our military build-up, the United States is developing a state-of-the-art Missile Defense System.”

“Together we unite behind a noble mission to shield our country with the greatest missile defense systems anywhere on the face of the earth.”

President Barack Obama

“[And] after an extensive process, I have approved the unanimous recommendations of my Secretary of Defense and my Joint Chiefs of Staff to strengthen America’s defenses against ballistic missile attack. This new approach will provide capabilities sooner, build on proven systems, and offer greater defenses against the threat of missile attack than the 2007 European missile defense program.”

President George W. Bush

“In August 2002, the Secretary of Defense proposed an evolutionary way ahead for the deployment of missile defenses, The capabilities planned for operational use in 2004 and 2005 will include ground-based interceptors, sea-based interceptors, additional Patriot (PAC-3) units, and sensors based on land, at sea, and in space.”

President George H.W. Bush

“Now, with remarkable technological advances like the Patriot missile, we can defend against ballistic missile attacks aimed at innocent civilians. Looking forward, I have directed that the SDI [Strategic Defense Initiative] program be refocused on providing protection from limited ballistic missile strikes, whatever their source. Let us pursue an SDI program that can deal with any future threat the to United States, to our forces overseas, and to our friends and allies.”

President Ronald Reagan

“Let me share with you a vision of the future which offers hope. It is that we embark on a program to counter the awesome Soviet missile threat with measures that are defensive.”

“What if free people could live secure in the knowledge that their security did not rest upon the threat of instant U.S. retaliation to deter a Soviet attack, that we could intercept and destroy strategic ballistic missiles before they reached our own soil or that of our allies?”
