The White House Touted an Article Making Fun of President Trump's Budget

Trump's budget will have major cuts to EPA, State Department

The proposed budget does not specifically say whether the White House plans to cut or eliminate funding of State Department or USAID initiatives or programs that promote LGBT and intersex rights overseas.

President Trump's Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney on Sunday defended the administration's budget blueprint for not reducing the federal deficit - despite his past reputation as a deficit hawk member of Congress.

The budget's targets include some programs, like the NIH, that have enjoyed broad bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress. CPB supports 1,500 public radio and TV stations across the country, among them, the National Public Radio.

The Energy Department's Office of Science would see its $5 billion budget cut by almost 20 percent, while the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy would see its $300 million budget zeroed out. NIH funds medical research, including about 300,000 scientists at universities. "I am hoping hat some of these cuts go through, but probably not all of them will", Edwards said.

"That sound you hear from Washington, DC this morning is the weeping and gnashing of teeth from bureaucrats and politicians who have built the federal government into an industry on the backs of taxpayers", Club for Growth president David McIntosh said in a statement.

Trump's budget would also eliminate the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and the Community Services Block Grant program to achieve a savings of $4.2 billion.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Mulvaney said: "I think the president is fairly straightforward".

"That's a message that our adversaries and our allies alike should take", the top White House official said as the Democratic lawmakers and foreign policy experts slammed the Trump administration for a drastic 28 per cent reduction in the foreign aid budget, which mostly is routed through the State Department. "This pretty much eliminates that possibility in terms of the help coming from the federal government".

Rep. Peter King, R-New York, a staunch Trump supporter and former House Homeland Security Committee chairman, called the blueprint "dead on arrival" given proposed cuts to homeland security programs - including counter-terrorism funding - to help finance President Trump's plans to ramp up immigration enforcement and construct a wall on the US-Mexico border. It is a challenge of great stakes, but one the American people can solve.

As a presidential candidate, Trump campaigned on a pledge to quickly balance the budget, and eliminate federal debt during his presidency.

Other new spending includes $1.4 billion to promote privatized education, increased funding for combating opioid addiction, and more dollars to adjudicate immigration removal efforts.

[Trump's budget] smacks of Reaganomics back in the 1980s with a large increase in defense spending and hefty cuts for programmes which are created to help the poor. Beaton said his office receives roughly $65 million from the federal government. "We're on our own, '" he said.
