Trump lays out plan to build up military

by Ben Kamisar | The HIll  |  published on September 7, 2016

Donald Trump is offering a plan to revitalize America’s military by building up troop levels and ending caps on the military budget.

The proposals, announced ahead of a Wednesday morning speech in Philadelphia, comes as the Republican presidential nominee looks to push back against Democratic attacks on his fitness to serve as commander in chief.

A fact sheet released by Trump’s campaign ahead of the speech says he will “ask Congress to fully eliminate the defense sequester and will submit a new budget to rebuild our military as soon as he assumes office.”

The sequestration measures that went into effect in 2013 affected both military and nonmilitary spending. It’s unclear whether Trump believes the cuts to nonmilitary spending should remain.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has come out against all of the sequestration cuts, framing the levels as arbitrary.

    We are counting on you to save our laws and Constitution and FREEDOM.

    What has Hillary said about the job? Nothing but pay your fair share. that would mean raising taxes so she could rest in luxury. To keep her monies coming in. With Trump at least we have a chance but with Hillary we have none.

    He did a wonderful job I listened to the entire thing just as his speech on illegals and everything else has been spot on. He gave the public enough information to make them understand the need for this while telling them he left the final details to our Generals etc. Good the enemy won’t know, he isn’t like the Traitor O he will keep the enemy at bay. Loved his ideas about beefing up our cyber security and increasing our cyber intelligence. He is right on about the shield also. O has absolutely crippled America in every way possible and I am not surprised another 1.3 billion went to Iran to pay for the weapons they will use to kill us as soon as they get the chance.

    How anyone can allow O to leave the WH with all we know he has done to commit Treason is a mystery he needs shackling in leg irons and cuffed and taken out of the WH to the prison or whatever congress decides his punishment for Treason, along with Hellery should be. That would be Justice for all of us.

      I pray that Donald Trump does get the presidency. I just read on another site that obummer wants to cut the military by 25,000.

      • Tiger

        Yes and in fact he told leaders overseas recently that his plans are fail proof and nobody can change them and he intends to do this by 2018. Interesting knowing he won’t be in office but if Hellery gets in he is in.

        This is something everyone needs to listen to. I learned about this during Shield/Storm and then coming home from this war, seeing what was going on I realized I needed to start making people aware of this. Our congress has known about this since the 80’s and didn’t listen or where with them.
