US re-establishes 2nd Fleet to counter 'competition'

The 2nd fleet will be tasked with covering the US East Coast and the north of the Atlantic Ocean, presumably as a response to Russia’s increased activity in the region.

“Washington disbanded the 2nd fleet, which at the time numbered over 100 ships, in 2011.”

That was … Obama who disbanded it.
