Trump proposes record spending, trillion-dollar deficit by dcjogger in politics

[–]UmamiTofu 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It's a pretty basic part of a global military presence. For alliances, diplomacy, counterterrorism, humanitarian relief, and deterrence.
