    Allen Thomson @ 1238: "As it happens, a role commonly cited for the F-35 is SEAD and I believe Nimitz carries F-35s." The F-35 did its sea trials on the USS Nimitz, but the Nimitz needs upgrades to deploy fully...

    Sounds like a good idea. You can play golf all year long in Brazil and Bolsonaro is one of the rare world leaders that Trump hasn't bad-mouthed. But I'm still betting Trump will go to the UK. They speak English...
