Interesting analysis by the NYT:

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/03/22/us/is-americas-military-big-enough.html


Past administrations have increased military spending, but typically to
fulfill a specific mission. Jimmy Carter expanded operations in the
Persian Gulf. Ronald Reagan pursued an arms race with the Soviet Union,
and George W. Bush waged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mr. Trump has not articulated a new mission that would require a
military spending increase. This has left analysts wondering what goals
he has in mind. Erin M. Simpson, a national security consultant, called
Mr. Trump’s plans “a budget in search of a strategy.”
