US President Donald Trump is seeking to boost defence spending by 10% in his proposed budget plan for 2018.

The blueprint will increase defence spending by 54 billion dollars, but seeks to recoup that sum through deep cuts elsewhere, including to foreign aid.

The president has consulted government agencies about his plans and will present his budget to Congress in May.

President Trump said he wanted the government to be "lean and accountable to the people".
