Top Trump Economic Adviser: 'No Alternative but to Reinvest in Our Military'

Gary Cohn
Former Goldman Sachs president and current White House Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn was a guest on "Fox News Sunday" for an exclusive interview in which he discussed President Donald Trump's plan for "protecting" America.

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.

  1. The military can't account for $6.5 trillion but demands more dough:

  2. This is exactly what the U.S. does NOT need! Bring the troops home, discharge them, and let them find productive jobs rather than running around the world blowing up innocents and spawning terrorist retaliation.

    Current national debt: $20 trillion. Change in national debt: $1 trillion/year, at least. Hey, that's not enough! Let's spend another tril or so on the military, already bloated beyond belief.

  3. Replies
    1. Don't worry, (((Cohn))) won't let Trump forget about Israeli foreign aid.

    2. I can never tell if Israel is the 51st state or if the USG is just a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tel Aviv.

    3. If you look at the Jeffrey Epstein pedogate island operation as a Mossad brownstone operation (Epstein had Mossad / Israeli Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS)) connections, then the argument could be made that it is the latter

    4. Good point. And the hostile takeover occurred roughly beginning with the USS Liberty.

  4. Wait, so he asked the generals, and they said they need more money? GTFOH

  5. --- "Unfortunately, we have no alternative but to reinvest in our military and make ourselves a military power once again," Cohn said. ---

    That's as credible as a fashionista claiming she needs to invest in more shoes to be the talk of the town once again.

    1. Almost. The fashionista will wear the clothes, while the (((chosenites))) never serve in the military. Their survival strategy involves parasitism on a strong society rather than creating their own.
