Mnuchin: Trump will “demand” increase in military spending

“President Trump will ‘demand’ an increase in military spending when he and Congress negotiate an end-of-year budget deal, his Treasury secretary said Tuesday. Steven Mnuchin said at a conference that Trump agreed to a three-month deal on the budget and debt limit last week because the alternative was a one year-deal, which would have hindered military spending.” (09/12/17)
