A draft executive action for President Donald Trump could include the use of attack helicopters and artillery on the ground in a new tactic to try to destroy the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa.

The order, which the White House is preparing for Trump’s signature, would require the Pentagon to produce new military options within 30 days, the New York Times reported.

Another draft memorandum would set up a 30-day review for ‘rebuilding the U.S. armed forces.’

A draft order obtained by the Washington Post calls for a ‘new Nuclear Posture Review’ to ensure that the U.S. nuclear triad is ‘modern, robust, flexible, resilient, and appropriately tailored to deter 21st century threats and reassure our allies and partners, and achieve Presidential objectives should deterrence fail.
