Duffy: Trump's Proposed Increase in Military Spending 'A Good Start'

The $54 billion boost in military spending proposed by President Donald Trump is "a good start," Rep. Sean Duffy told Fox News on Wednesday.

The Wisconsin Republican said it is important that "we have a president who is actually talking about building out our military and taking care of our vets. We haven't seen that for eight years."

Duffy emphasized that he believes in peace through strength.

"We save money in the long run with a larger military. We save lives with a larger, stronger military," Duffy said.

What's equally as important, Duffy stressed, was that in his speech to Congress on Tuesday, the president "kept his promise to the American people."

In addition to following through on his pledge to increase spending on defense and to help veterans, Trump also kept his vow that he is "going to repeal Obamacare, he's going to fix taxes, and he doubled down on that."

Writing in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Duffy also said, "confidence in the economy is skyrocketing" due to Trump keeping his promises on creating an environment that is conducive to job growth and to “overhaul the tax code to ensure that America is the most desirable place in the world to do business and create jobs.”

Duffy told Fox that it was "awesome" to be in the chamber for Trump’s address.
"There were so many former members of Congress that wanted to come and hear Donald Trump speak. If you came to the chamber late, there were no more seats left," Duffy said.
