At $19B price, are we builing modern day Yamato, Bismarck?
China is rapidly advancing in hypersonic missile's range and accuracy. They have purpose built carrier-killer missiles, at a fraction of a carrier price, they can swarm the defenses of the carrier group.

DF-26 intercontinental ballistic on mobile launchers, 4-5000 kilometers away.

Submerged drone platforms, each filled with 100s of thousands of tiny nukes and bio-war weapons operated by remote control.

Grab a Pepsi, email an ultimatum - empty the treasury and mail it to us or die - or every city is decimated. Yes, you're done for the day and can knock off early, no, you key in preset GPS coordinates for the target's cities to deliver tactical nukes and go to lunch in 30 minutes.
