Trump claimed during his campaign he was watching out for the little guy.
Yet, there was this story about how he's going to spend $54 Billion more on the military, reducing the amount many other programs will receive.
I wonder. The USA already spends more than the next 8 countries COMBINED. Source.
With that kind of expenditure...why in the world would it make sense to spend yet another $54 Billion? Is this simply ego stroking? What does Trump hope to accomplish?
As we've seem with the militarization of local police forces in the US (Source), if you've got the hardware, you're going to use it.
Trump's already demonstrated (in an absurdly botched raid, which produced no usable intelligence) that he's excited about using his new toys.
If I were the leader of a country that spends less than the US (like every other country), I'd be more than a little concerned.
