Trump is intending to raise the defense budgets with about 10%. What has Trump to gain except increasing the globalist agenda, while saying he's against globalism. Doesn't that make Trump even more dangerous? I think Trump is the perfect puppet to prepare America for the Big War. What do you think?

^^ ... yeah I think we can all agree on that.
You know... I miss the days when the biggest most outrageous 'scandal' going was whether or not Bill got a BJ in the Oval office... things are getting downright crazy, one day piles onto the next.
If we don't re-enforce our military we might not have to worry about healthcare.
Dude... Duuuuude, like, we are under attack in our own streets, by our own kids, who are being brainwashed by our enemies that have taken over our Congress... like, we got bigger issues than China invading Taiwan right now, dig???
We already spend 3X more than China, and 9X more than Russia, on our military. How 'bout getting those costs under control? How 'bout taking care of our citizens here, rather than stirring up trouble all over the globe?
Lisa, that is because China and Russia have kept theirs up and haven't been defending other countries the way we have. You don't have to spend as much that way. DUH.
Actually it has more to do with the fact that they don't pay their troops much at all, because they have no pensions or care to speak of, and they don't throw away billions in fat&waste to the "military industrial complex".
I would hope that a large part of the answer is that we take care of our military during and after service and China and Russia don't give a crap.
How many wars has China been in during the last 25 yrs compared to the US. Blame politicians who keep us at war,&lose those wars. Pres Obama asks Repub Congress for a base defense budget $534 bil in 2016, exceeding by $35 billion the mandatory a
That sounds rational to me.
How has he proved that?????
And what do you base that on. Your opinion is without meaning, facts, foundation or anything? Read my comment above for some foundation.
Actions speak louder and contradict his words. His choices of cabinet are the reverse of "draining the swamp". His spending tens of billions more on our military budget will take money from infrastructure and Americans who need it the most.
Joseph, how can you make a prediction on his picks when you don't let them work? Infrastructure, the govt hasn't done anything in over 5 decades. u thinkthe military shouldn't get the equipment they need to be safe and do their job?my orig comment!
And you expect to spend Monopoly money?!?!?!
MizBejabbers, That was an eloquent handling of this question. When politicians send people to war, they should give them what they need for war, and also take care of them when they come back, and honor those that didn't make it back. Thanks
The US hasn't been attacked this far by a foreign army, but solely attacks countries at the other side of the globe. That is globalism. When you raise this budget, you ipso facto reinforce the globalists agenda. That isn't so difficult, isn't it?
Buildreps, you sit in Europe and pontificate, but what if we weren't here to stand behind your European butt? And if you think we don't do that you obviously aren't well informed.
MizB, that's a typical arrogant American stance. What prevents me from defining Americans as occupiers?
If you saw your hard-earned tax money going overseas to defend other countries while your own infrastructure is failing, you might have the right to be arrogant, too.
Of course, I would feel the same in your position. But can you help me with this: where is the motive to do all this for the most capitalistic country in the world? Charity or helping the Military Industrial Complex to keep running?
BR, my father had to go to the Pacific Theater to help defend our country when Pearl Harbor was attacked while we were helping defend the Allies in Europe against the Axis powers. Where would you be today without our help? Free people are vulnerable.
Reagan or rather Col Ollie North got nailed for Iran Contra, but Neither Obama nor HRC got nailed for Benghazi and other CIA failures of trying to tip the scales of other countries, and yet the democrats complain about suspected Russian manipulations
