Let me translate for Cacon: 1) Lavishing money on social programs at the expense of national defense is red meat for carnivorous Republican voters. 2) Compared to the peak of war time the defense budget is down 3) American troop presence in Iraq and Afghanistan is down 4) Equipment is aging.

Now, facts: The U.S. remains far and away the world's foremost military power. The military is spending more and getting less.
Obama was/is committed to modernizing the U.S. arsenal. He supported the Air Force's new bomber, a new ballistic missile submarine for the Navy, revitalizing a fleet of nuclear bombs, and a potential new nuclear cruise missile. Some estimates put the cost for the program Obama supported at around $1 trillion over the next 30 years.
Obama's defense budget request for 2016 was $608 billion—a 2.1-percent increase over last year’s budget: not enormous, but not trivial either, and certainly not a cut.

As usual, the Rightwing boneheads, disregard facts. Obama didn't GUT anything and Trump has done NOTHING. The numbers are easy to find. Unfortunately the RW isn't interested.

President Obama?s military budget is still one of the biggest ever.

Sure, one COULD say that. One would be full of shit, but whatever...

BTW, should that idiot Lord Lard-Ass choose to attack N.K. just who's military do you think he'll be using?

...Obama is not the first U.S. President to cut the nuclear stockpile. In fact, as the Federation of American Scientists points out, all presidents since Lyndon Johnson have made cuts, when the stockpile numbered more than 30,000 weapons. Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush have made the deepest by far.
