1.) STRONG National Defense

The media is attacking the President over discretionary spending, as defense spending is being increased rather than cut like domestic discretionary programs (this is not related to the mandatory spending category, which comprises Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.). Defense spending will be sizable at $716 billion in 2019; remember, that's 16.25 percent of the budget, only about one third more than we spend on interest, which is alarmingly high at 11.5 percent of the budget. President Trump is ending Obama era sequestration, which will increase defense spending by over $700 billion in the next decade.
