On Tuesday night, Trump called on Congress to end sequestration during a speech in Greenville, N.C.

“I will ask Congress to eliminate the sequester and immediately re-invest in our military,” he said, citing the shrinking size of the branches.

The Trump campaign will present Clinton as pushing "wild-eyed globalism" "regime changes,” according to Bloomberg reporter Kevin Cirilli. 

He also said the candidate still opposes regime change in Syria, news that comes one day after President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin had an informal meeting Monday to discuss a possible cease-fire in the area. 

 

  

Cirilli also reported that Trump says he’ll have his generals draft a plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on his first day in office.
