Trump administration to propose $750 billion military budget next week
US President Donald Trump will ask for a Pentagon budget of $718 billion for 2020, part of an overall $750 billion request for defense, CNN reported citing two US officials.
The figure includes both the Pentagon budget as well as the nuclear weapons elements of the Energy Department budget.
The Pentagon request represents an increase of 4.7% over this year's budget.
However, given the fact that the Democrats control the House of Representatives, it's unclear whether the budget proposal can win congressional approval.
