Tom Cotton Urging Donald Trump To Campaign On Upgrading Military

Sen. Tom Cotton said Wednesday that he has advised Donald Trump to campaign on beefing up military spending, believing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has an advantage over the foreign policy record of Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"I suggested to Donald Trump the last time we spoke that that's a very important policy we need to pursue," the Arkansas Republican said at a forum hosted by The Heritage Foundation. "It's also a winning political issue."

Mr. Cotton, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he has told Mr. Trump in private conversations that the Obama administration's military policies will result in a shortfall of $80 billion to $100 billion for what the Pentagon will need next year. He said Mr. Trump has solicited his advice "a couple of times over the last year," most recently in late March.

"The American people understand our interests around the world are not being advanced under Barack Obama, and they probably wouldn't be under Hillary Clinton, either," Mr. Cotton said. "And the core part of that is our military. Our military is woefully underfunded." . . . Read Full article at ARRA News Service
