US President Donald Trump has promised to put in a massive budget request for America’s military and substantially upgrade it.

Trump made the remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference, CPAC. Last month, he signed an executive order to begin increasing the size of the US armed forces, promising new aircraft, naval ships and more resources for the Pentagon. The Republican billionaire has made it clear that he wants to enlarge the ranks of the military and expand its fleets of aircraft and ships. In his remarks, Trump also lashed out at his predecessors for the policies they adopted in the Middle East.
