1. Trump had to shore up the military which Obama decimated. That cost money

Give him time to work on the budget. National defense is the government's primary responsibility. Trump had to concede a lot of bullshit spending to democrats in order to rebuild the military.

In spite of doubling the national debt, Obama destroyed the military. That is a disgrace.

4. Tax revenue is up

According to CBS. it's a spending issue not a receipts issue.
