W.H. on Budget Deal: ‘Thanks to President Trump We Can Now Have the Strongest Military We Have Ever Had’
HUCKABEE SANDERS: "This deal also increases budget caps, ends the sequester and provides certainty for the next two years. Defense spending will match the requests made by the Pentagon and will reflect that the President signed into law with the National Defense Authorization Act. The bottom line is that thanks to the President — thanks to President Trump, we can now have the strongest military we have ever had. Additionally, this deal increases the debt ceiling to March of 2019, which moves us away from crisis to crisis budgeting. It also ensures funding for our other critical priorities, including rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure, tackling the opioid epidemic and taking care of our great veterans."
