Even though the US has hundreds of military bases all over (and threatening to) the world (113 in USS Japan alone), and is currently bombing Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Somalia, Bomber Trump still thinks the US military is weak.
So he just asked for a near 10% increase for the US military.
But apparently Bilderberg Mad Dog Mattis thinks this is still nowhere near enough!
Mattis has not spoken out against the spending plan publicly. But privately, the defense chief has told lawmakers that even with the proposed boost in funding, the Defense Department would not receive enough to do everything Trump has proposed.
"Mattis continues to express to members of the Armed Services Committees that he's being thwarted getting his message out that $603 billion is insufficient to do what Trump has called for," one Republican lawmaker told CNN.
