President Trump is keeping his promises; fake news won’t cover it.
Washington, D.C.: Never one to mince words, candidate Donald Trump promised to “build a military that’s gonna be much stronger than it is right now. It’s gonna be so strong, nobody’s going to mess with us.” An essential part of carrying this out was eliminating defense sequestration. Sequestration, which military leaders called the “biggest challenge to the military’s readiness,” came with the Budget Control Act of 2011. In it, the Department of Defense receives an automatic funding cut whenever Congress and the White House do not make certain other cuts in the national budget. As a result, the nation’s military has been terribly underfunded for nearly a decade.
“For fiscal year 2020, President Trump negotiated a budget deal with Democrat leaders to give the military a 3% increase in funding, for a total of $738 billion,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “The President called it ‘a real compromise in order to give another big victory to our Great Military and Vets!’ Obviously, this is not just a win for the military. This is a win for all Americans. After all, if Americans cannot defend their nation and their interests against foreign military aggression, none of the rest of the budget matters. Total military superiority is totally essential. Promise made, promise kept.”
President Donald Trump made many significant promises to the American people. During the first three and a half years of his administration he has delivered. The radical left hates this agenda and the Fake News won’t cover it, but voters need to be educated before they go to the polls in November.
