Trump celebrates commissioning of Navy destroyer

President Trump celebrated the commissioning of the U.S. Navy’s newest Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer,  John Finn.

The Finn was commissioned Saturday and brought into the Navy fleet at Hawaii's Pearl Harbor, according to a Navy news release.

It is named for Navy officer John Finn, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery during the Japanese attack on military installations in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941, that plunged the United States into World War II.
