President Trump released his proposed $4.38 trillion budget for fiscal 2019 on Monday, a plan that calls for big increases in military spending and border security after years of budget caps hampering national defense.
The budget is requesting $716 billion for the Defense Department, a 13 percent increase over 2017 levels.
The White House said the increase is necessary to confront “an era of increased global disorder, with a security environment more complex and volatile than any our country has faced in recent memory.”
“As a nation, we face difficult times—challenged by a crumbling infrastructure, growing deficits, rogue nations, and irresponsible Washington spending, said Milck Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget. “Though through this budget proposal, it is clear that the president and his administration are determined to reverse these trends, and ensure greater prosperity for the hard-working American taxpayer.”
President Trump said, “The budget provides resources to enhance missile defense and to build the planes, tanks, warships, and cyber tools that the brave men and women who defend us need to deter aggression and, when necessary, to fight and win. Most importantly, the budget provides funds to increase the size of our armed forces and to give our men and women in uniform a well-earned pay raise.”
