WELCOME TO TRUMP'S AMERICA : A BIGGER MILITARY AND POLICE STATE

President Trump said Monday that his first budget proposal would feature major boosts to military spending and local law enforcement funding offset by “greater savings and efficiencies” in the federal government.

...A senior Office of Management and Budget official told reporters Monday that Trump ask for a $54 billion increase in defense funding. The official didn’t say what figure the increase was based on.

Trump called the defense spending hike “a message to the world, in these dangerous times, of American strength, security and resolve.”

Trump also promised increased funding for local law enforcement agencies to crack down on violent crime.
