Military spending is set to double in 2018, according to a new report from the Congressional Budget Office.
The new data, which is based on the Army’s 2017 spending plan, also shows that the military is spending $3.6 trillion on defense in 2018 and 2019, or nearly 10 times the amount spent by the United States in 2016.
The report also shows how much more spending is needed to meet future threats and how much of that will be spent on defense.
The report shows that defense spending will grow by more than $1 trillion over the next 10 years, from $7.1 trillion in 2020 to $18.6 billion in 2027.
It is unclear whether the Pentagon will keep spending that much on defense if the military begins to face major security challenges, such as terrorism.
The military has seen a steep rise in the number of suicides in recent years.
