The Senate just passed a defense spending bill with a top line of $886 billion. Added to other national security-related funds like nuclear weapons modernization and homeland security, the U.S. is poised to spend more than one trillion on defense in 2024, with more than half going to military contractors.
Thanks for mentioning the ongoing miserable situation in Haiti. The US bears much of the blame for this and, if there was any political will in the US, could change things. Alas, Haitians have black skin and US politics is highly racist and short sighted. See the section on military spending.
