In case you somehow missed it, one of Donald Trump’s main proposals for his first budget is to increase defense spending by $54 billion. I guess it’s not enough that we spend as much as the next seven highest spending countries (or about the nominal GDP of Switzerland).
We need to spend more than the next NINE countries! Let’s spend as much as Saudi Arabia’s economy!
And can’t stop wondering: Can you put a price on peace?
It’s at least $700 billion.
