It is hard to comprehend our president. He wants to spend military money on a wall to protect us from the Mexicans. I guess they have become such a big threat.
But after all, we promised the military and the war profiteers they could have a big fat increase. Or maybe he knows that we are now maintaining a military presence in 133 countries around the globe. We need that money to buy arms that help keep the natives quiet. And, since we are budgeting more than the next seven top nation military spenders (including Russia and China) just maybe the generals won’t mind.
Personally, I would rather see us building safe bridges and highways. But guess he has his own personal agenda.
