Hey America, do you ever think to yourself, “Boy, I sure do wish we spent less money protecting the environment and more on guns and bombs and stuff.” You don’t?
The president told a group of 46 state governors on Sunday that he plans to expand military spending by an unprecedented degree.
More specifically, the orange-hued dingleberry wants to send an extra $54 billion—a 9.2 percent increase—the Pentagon’s way by reducing funding to agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State Department.
It’s unclear how much money the president wants to move from the EPA and State Departments’ coffers; the agencies’ combined budgets amount to around $74 billion.
Officials told The New York Times that the money might also come from social welfare programs, and Trump said that his plan would represent “historic increase in defense spending to rebuild the depleted military of the United States of America.”
President Trump literally wants to take money away from the EPA and the damn diplomatic corps in order to boost America’s “depleted” war machine.
