Fiscally Conservative What?

How exactly is it being fiscally conservative if the budget isn’t actually getting any smaller? On top of that add the eventual tax cuts which decrease revenue thereby​ increasing the debt. More defense spending (which only matters on the international stage) at the expense of lots of good and important domestic programs does not seem to put ‘America First’. For example, wouldn’t more infrastructure spending be more ‘America First’? Or how about more research spending, wouldn’t being the leader in a technology be more ‘America First’?

Of course I personally don’t advocate ‘America First’, I think that is short sighted to reduce funding of international aid programs. I’d rather increase revenue by things like eliminating investment tax loopholes. Though I’m sure there is some bloat in government spending that could be cut.
