The national security budget for fiscal 2023 has been released. The White House is asking for $813.3 billion – $43 billion over last year’s projections.

  • Roxana Tiron, senior reporter for Bloomberg Government, said a major theme from the budget is that Russia is still second to China as the United States’ main, “pacing” threat, partly because of how unsuccessful Russia’s military strategy towards Ukraine has been.
  • Tiron said a clear shift to the Pacific region and a focus on nuclear triad modernization, hypersonic weapons, artifical intelligence and cyber reflect China as the pacing threat.
  • She said there will be a major debate about how inflation factors into the budget.
