It remains to be seen, frankly, where this money is coming from. That is unclear. Many people in Washington and elsewhere are scratching their head trying to figure out how this will work. President Trump has talked about investing a lot more cash into the military throughout his campaign. Since he has become president, he says he wants peace through strength.

He has been talking to the New York Times in an interview that has been published, and in it he says that yes, there could be implications for the 2020 six World Cup bid, which of course the United States is the clear front runner for at the moment, if president Donald Trump's travel ban, which of course has had its own issues and legal disputes since he introduced it by an executive order a number of weeks ago, is finally implement it, if that is in place.

Certainly Donald Trump would say he is just sticking to his promises. But the big question is how he will pay for this. He says he wants to increase defence spending by $54 billion. It is just a plan at the moment, not a finalised budget. But he says he will not put America into further debt to do that.

Donald Trump is hoping to raise Defence spending by 10% next year, a rise of more than $40 billion. It would be unusual to see such a big increase when America is not fighting a major war. Siobhan Robbins has more from Washington.

" So, let me get this clear in my head, you believe that Donald Trump is going to revoke the Clean Air Act, that he is going to revoke the standards that he imposed on coal and natural gas power plants, he's going to revoke some of the clean water regulations, the Waters of the US Rule, the standards imposed on the Chesapeake Bay, these are all gone as far as you're concerned, if Donald Trump gets his way? Not the Clean Air Act but the Greenhouse Gas rules that have been propagated under the Clean Air Act.

So, let me tell you what President Trump said during the campaign. He promised to withdraw from the Paris climate treaty, of greenhouse gas rules and other environmental rules that he said, and I think quite correctly, had very little to do with environmental protection, but have a huge negative effect on the economy, and they are blocking investment in the economy and creating jobs.

Every single Republican. So I think that the Republican Party is united, and we have some people who have perhaps served their country well many decades ago but they really... They are out of the debate, they are not a significant part of the conservative movement today. Right, well, let's look at what Donald Trump as president, surrounded by people from the conservative movement, may do in terms of environmental policy-making.

If the climate is as sensitive to CO2 as is claimed by the alarmists, we should have seen significant warming in the last 20 years. Now, there was an attempt to rewrite the temperature record and that has just this week been exposed as a hoax. Well, I do want to get into the detail of what you think is going to happen to environment policy under the Trump administration but one last point on the politics of this, Australasia, everywhere else, and, frankly, right of centre politicians on the whole are now very accepting of the scientific consensus around climate change.

Right. I mean, it is probably inportant to remind everyone you come from a background, the Competitive Enterprise Institute Centre for Energy and Environment, which we know the past has been for Energy and Environment, which we know in the past has been funded by Exxon Mobil, by the Koch brothers, by people who clearly have an interest in pouring scorn on the climate change agenda, so it is indeed interesting that Donald Trump picked you to handle his EPA and environmental policy transition, isn't it? Yes, I was surprised.

One side won and the other side lost, so I think the American people basically agree with President Trump, that climate change is not one of their top concerns and that there are a lot more pressing issues to take up by the government. Do you think the American people agree with President Trump when he tweets, as he has, in the last few years, in fact, because it is a consistent thought of his, that global warming is a hoax? "I am not a believer" he has said.

Yes, I mean, you obviously have the inside track on this, because you were part of the transition team very much First, I have no role in the Trump administration. My work in the transition is over, so I don't represent or speak for the Trump administration, or for the President. I was asked to lead the transition team on EPA because in fact my views largely respond to the views that the President campaigned on and that he promised the American people he would do if he was elected.

He was man of the year last year and quite right. By Time magazine. No. He was nominated. Fake news! He is proposing a huge increase into defence spending, 54 billion. Cutting foreign aid, could we do that here, please? Environment programme.

OK, look at the experts. Some even see in the anti-expert rhetoric a slippery slope that leads to the post fact morass of Trump's America. I've always wanted to say this, I've never said this before, all the talking we all do, all of these experts, we need an expert here, the experts are terrible. The assault on experts has implications for fields from medicine to intelligence.
