Pentagon to get $1.48 trillion with two-year budget deal

Washington, August 3 (RHC)-- The U.S. Senate has sent President Donald Trump a two-year budget that would increase both domestic and military spending by raising the debt ceiling and rolling back spending caps.  

Trump has promised to sign the deal, which would increase government spending by $320 billion over the next two years, with the Pentagon set to receive a staggering $738 billion for the coming fiscal year. 

According to the National Priorities Project, the U.S. spends more on its military than 144 other countries combined.
