The US urgently needs new icebreaker ships to patrol the Arctic. Will Trump's boundary wall get in the way?



As the ice disappears, the Arctic is increasingly busy. On the northern shipping routes, there is an increase in shipping, which is now open for a long time, while demand for oil and gas is rising. The dissolving ice is less predictable, risking ships running aground and spilling oil or spilled cargo, crew and cruise passengers. There are also concerns about illegal fishing and smuggling.

Arctic experts even say that icebreakers must fill a critical military gap in order to strengthen the US presence in a region where nations are fighting for dominance.
