The Hill reports that the White House has requested an additional $4 billion from Congress for missile defense systems to combat North Korea.
“This request supports additional efforts to detect, defeat, and defend against any North Korean use of ballistic missiles against the United States, its deployed forces, allies or partners,” President Trump wrote in a letter to Congress on Monday.
Originally, the administration asked for $9.9 billion for missile defense for the 2018 fiscal year.
