Unmentioned in all the applause: the rise in US military sales! Exported arms, under Trump had a record year. 2017 saw $76 billion booked.
The arms trade, along with uniformed troops deployed in 150 countries, CENTCOM active in 20 countries in the Middle East (a Harvard paper), engagement in 115 silent wars (by some counts), against stateless, well financed “terrorists” are a contradiction to Trump’s promise to keep our military at home. What’s the costs of his wars? The total cost of trade, deployment and equipment, to a country weakened by tax cuts?
