Largely pork, you’re likely right — but I think you also have to sort what Trump wants (or thinks he wants) vs. what his handlers are using him for. With 45, you unfortunately can’t ever rule out either his vanity or his paranoia as a decision factor, to the extent any of the deliberation is left up to him. The “strong man” pose, as supported by promises of military beefing up, is one of the things that has always made his base cheer him at his frackin’ rallies.
