In his December 18th speech (https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/12/18/watch_live_president_trump_outlines_new_america_first_national_security_strategy.html ) Trump articulated an "America First" strategy: "The first duty of our government is to serve its citizens... With every decision and every action, we are now putting America first. We are rebuilding our nation..." Unfortunately, Trump's actions belie his words; he continues to prioritize military spending over critical domestic spending.

The politics of sustainability argues that the current levels of US military expenditures are not sustainable. The United States has crucial domestic needs that must be met to protect working families and bolster democracy.

Democrats must have a sustainable vision for the environment, the economy, and national security. Their 2018 message should be based upon sustainability.
