Abstract
The Trump Administration sent its proposed budget to the U.S. Congress on March 16. A key provision of the budget is an increase in the Department of Defense (DoD) budget by $54 billion dollars, a 10% increase. At the same time, this proposal decreases the budget of the State Department by $10.1 billion, or 28%. This illconsidered maneuver will only serve to increase our nation’s insecurity. Of particular concern is that no strategy is attached to the DoD's increased funding. Rather than a strategy or plan, the basis for such important decisions appears to be political or even personal.
