Cohn said the previous administration under-invested in the military the past eight years.
"Unfortunately, we have no alternative but to reinvest in our military and make ourselves a military power once again," Cohn said.
Cohn said Trump met over the last several weeks with generals from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines to talk about the military's preparedness. He said it has been disappointing to hear what these generals have had to say.
He said if funds are used to reinvest in the military, cuts need to be made elsewhere in order ensure a balanced budget without creating a further deficit.
"It's no different than every other family in America that has to make the tough decision," Cohn said. "When they need to spend money somewhere, they have to cut it from somewhere else. These are tough decisions, but the president has shown he is ready, willing and able to make these tough decisions."
Note well: There will be no net cut in the U.S. government budget. Trump is a hardcore militarist, who is all about expanding (and using) the military. This is where the money is going to be spent,
It is all about the MILITARY-Industrial Complex.
And Gary Cohn is just fine with that.
