Trump has signed a record defense budget


In total, budget allocations for 2018 will total $ 1,3 trillion in total, of which $ 700 billion will be defense expenditures. At the same time last year it was planned to spend $ 639 billion on defense. Later, military spending was increased to $ 692 billion, and then increased to $ 700 billion. Thus, in 2018, the US defense budget reached its historical maximum (excluding inflation) . The volume of the defense budget for the 2019 fiscal year may also be a record.

Defense spending in the United States has grown since 2000 and peaked in 2010 ($ 698 billion). The US military budget is the largest in the world and accounts for more than a third of global defense spending. In addition, the country is the world's largest arms supplier.

          Whoever, whatever they say, but the military spending of the mattresses so far has been the most effective - they have never had a war on their territory with external enemies. No one dared to use military force against this country. hi

      And where did you get that labeled tore the USSR economy with a military budget. On the contrary, he almost destroyed the defense. And why should Trump get upset? In his Ministry of Finance, good artists will draw as much.

      as long as the army is strong, their debts generally don’t bother ... they can always run into a creditor and democratize them to the state of the Stone Age

    In order to establish who really is the initiator of the arms race, it is enough just to compare how much money these countries allocate for this matter. For one, you can compare who and how many have military bases on their territory, and even better abroad.

    Defense? The poor are defending themselves all over the world ... and oil is being extracted through a universal interface and their poppy is not growing, and all the gold miners have dug up all the gold in the 19th century ... how to live that? That's the defense
