America is the world’s reigning imperialist power – constantly invading and attacking other countries for economic gain but in the guise of “freedom” and other humanitarian reasons. In 2016, America’s military budget was by far the greatest, exceeding the combined budgets of the next ten largest military budgets in the world.

Trump, despite his economically nationalist attitude, now wants to increase the military budget by 10% and extend America’s Imperial legacy.

Sit in and learn more about modern imperialism in the age of Trump.
