1 min read

President Donald Trump has said he plans to increase spending on the country’s missile defense efforts in response to North Korea’s increasing nuclear threats, Washington Examiner reported Friday.

“We’re going to be increasing the anti-missile by a substantial number of billions,” Trump told reporters Thursday.

The White House’s fiscal 2018 budget blueprint includes $7.9 billion for the Missile Defense Agency, up $379 million from the fiscal 2017 MDA funding request.

The Defense Department also currently reviews its ballistic missile defense strategy as DoD aims to establish a framework to defend the U.S. and its interests overseas against ballistic missile threats.
