Dwight D Eisenhower on Trump's plans to expand the millitary

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. - President Dwight D. Eisenhower, April 16, 1953
