The U.S. spends $610 billion annually on national defense.

That’s more than the total spent by the next seven biggest military spending nations combined. China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, France, the United Kingdom, and Japan spend a combined total of $578 billion annually.

There is little public recognition of this spending comparison. In fact, just 45 percent of American voters recognize that the United States spends more on its military than any other individual country in the world. Only 22% recognize that America spends more than Russia and China combined.
