Media Deliberately Distorting Trump's Views on Defense Spending

President Trump’s pragmatic foreign policy agenda is rooted in pure realism, but the Democrats and the press are deliberately distorting his views to make it seem like the White House is flip-flopping on defense.

In headline after headline, the mainstream media recently mischaracterized the president's position on defense spending, interpreting his criticism of the ongoing security competition with Russia and China as a call to tighten the Pentagon’s wallet.

While President Trump did call the size of the defense budget “crazy” in a recent tweet, he was talking about the expense of keeping pace with the military buildup of our main rivals, not endorsing the long-standing liberal dream of unilaterally disarming America.
