Washington(ANN)-US Vice President Mike Pence names a USS fast-attack submarine “Indiana” on President Donald Trump’s 100th day at helm.

As the president ended his 100th day in office on Saturday, Pence christened the new submarine at the Newport News Shipyard in Virginia.

“[Trump] sent me here today on this historic occasion as a sign of his deep commitment to the Armed Forces of the United States of America, and to his commitment to make the strongest fighting force in the world even stronger still,” Pence said. “At a time of mounting threats across the globe, President Trump has made it clear America’s national security is this President’s highest priority now and always.”

This is the third US Navy ship that has been christened with the name of the Hoosier state.

Before starting his work under the new president in January, Pence served as the governor of the US state of Indiana.

“As I served as governor of the state of Indiana, I learned of this extraordinary boat, but I could not have well imagined that I would be standing before you today in this moment with the great privilege to be at this christening,” Pence said.

The US vice president further highlighted Trump’s commitment to the US forces and his resolve to boost the military.

“Know today that under President Donald Trump that beacon will shine bright, brighter than ever before. And with this President’s leadership, the United States I believe is entering a new era of security, prosperity, and strength,” he said.

Ahead of the christening ceremony, the acting secretary of the US Navy, Sean Stackley, boasted that the United States produces “the finest submarines in the world.”

“Our Navy will continue to dominate the undersea domain long into the future,” he said.
