US President Joe Biden could cut US military spending by $ 7 billion compared to his predecessor, 45th US President Donald Trump. Bloomberg reported this on Friday, April 9, citing sources.
The Donald Trump administration budgeted $ 722 billion in the Pentagon’s budget, while Joe Biden’s side, according to newspaper sources, will offer the US Department of Defense $ 715 billion. A similar step should be assessed by the Democratic Party, which advocated cuts in defense spending.
Initially, the White House administration planned to announce spending guidelines last Friday, but due to disagreements over questions about US defense spending, the release of the budget plan has been delayed.
Earlier, US President Joe Biden said that “epidemiology of violence” with the use of firearms is taking place in the United States.
The American president described this situation as “an international shame for the country.”
