According to a 2016 DoD Inspector General audit, the DoD cannot account for $6.5 TRILLION. Trump wants to increase their budget by $54B. If you spend $6k/year on X and can't account for $65k going to X, would you increase the budget of X by $540?

Hell no. The DoD has a track record of mismanaging money, so why do we reward them with more? Absolutely asinine, backward thinking.

Recover the lost funds then use that money.

I can find it. I challenge the government to give me a chance.

The money has likely been siphoned off to deep state secret projects, graft, and perhaps not a few secret Swiss bank accounts. This has been going on for decades. Even GW Bush's Sec of Def Rumsfeld was commenting on lots of missing money just before 911 happened.

This money was not lost under Trump. I would put Sessions on them. Investigate..

You don't lose $6.5 trillion under one administration. This is habitual and it doesn't matter who is in the White House. I bet this goes all the way back to Reagan.... keep in mind that this includes a whopping $0 in known DoD waste.... which is actually incredibly high as well.

We've had a bloated defense budget for awhile. Money seems like it doesn't go where it's needed
