United States President Joe Biden on March 28 unveiled a whopping $5.8 trillion annual budget proposal that calls for the largest investments in the country's national security history, with the Department of Defense (DoD) prioritising China as its "pacing challenge."

"Budgets are statements of values, and the budget I am releasing today sends a clear message that we value fiscal responsibility, safety and security at home and around the world, and the investments needed to continue our equitable growth and build a better America," Biden said as his administration unveiled the second annual budget.

The administration, he said, is on track to reduce the federal deficit by more than $1.3 trillion this year, cutting in half the deficit from the last year of the previous administration and delivering the largest one-year reduction in the deficit in US history.
