Trump Suddenly Ready to Cut Military Spending

Excuse me, what’s going on here?

The Chinese are rapidly expanding their military capabilities and projecting their power around the world. Before you know it, we won’t be able to defend Taiwan, and all of our allies in Asia will be threatened.

China with its One Belt, One Road is spreading its economic tentacles all over the world, making other nations dependent and enforcing this with its expanding military. Russia is also a growing threat.

I’m no Neocon or foreign adventurist, but we have interests overseas that affect out economy and we have to defend them, and our allies.

Trump wants to cut some $30 billion from proposed spending for next year. This after Obama’s damaging cuts that have harmed our fighting men and women. I hope Trump is engaged in some kind of bargaining ploy, because otherwise, I don’t get it.
