Military Times: Trump Should Complete First Defense Budget Plan by April

President-elect Donald Trump needs to complete his first spending plan for the Defense Department before a continuing resolution that currently funds government operations expires in April, Military Times reported Monday.

Leo Shane writes Trump’s first budget request will establish a baseline for at least four years of defense spending.

The report said Trump looks to grow the force size in the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps; increase U.S. Navy ships and U.S. Air Force fighter aircraft; modernize nuclear weapons systems; and boost cybersecurity investment.

The incoming administration’s plans could increase active-duty force by approximately 140,000 personnel, Shane reported.
