Let's see - If we take the $54B (military) + $16B (wall) Trump wants to spend well ... that buys a lot of "Medicare for all Americans" and some free college tuition (what those coal miners really need)

My idea is simplistic for sure. However, it makes a $#!+-ton more sense than throwing another 10% at the military when we already spend more money on the military than the next 7 countries combined (including Russia). And the wall ... well I've never thought immigration was as big a problem as Trump & Co make it out to be, but the fact is with all his rhetoric, illegal immigration has dropped pretty drastically so I see even less of a need for it. And we all know its going to cost way more than their budget predictions ($16B ).
