And who did Eisenhower warn against?

The very same military-industrial complex he created!

And the very same military-industrial complex that whacked JFK.

Trump is repeating that same mistake.

President Trump has become the first president since Dwight D. Eisenhower to exert personal leadership in support of the U.S. defense industrial base. In signing an executive order Friday directing a government-wide assessment of this vital national asset, President Trump has signaled to friend and foe alike that the health of the defense industrial base is a major priority.

In 1953, President Eisenhower initiated what became Project Solarium, a presidentially directed review of how the United States would counter Soviet expansionism. As part of Solarium, President Eisenhower personally instructed his aides to focus on the health of the defense industrial base, which could have been stretched to capacity in the event of a prolonged conventional conflict with the Soviet Union.
