Trump was effusive about updates to the budget supporting the Special Olympics, and a return to space in a BIG WAY.Today, I officially updated my budget to include $18 million for our GREAT @SpecialOlympics, Trump tweeted, whose athletes inspire us and make our Nation so PROUD!Under my Administration, we are restoring @NASA to greatness and we are going back to the Moon, then Mars, the President also said. I am updating my budget to include an additional $1.6 billion so that we can return to Space in a BIG WAY!And despite an original proposal that cut the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative budget by 90%, the president included a half billion dollars for environmental restoration projects: $300 million in funding for the aforementioned initiative, and another $200 million for the Army Corps Everglades restoration work.

Spend and more spend is nice.
But what about cut, cut, cut, cut and cut some more? Where’s the plan to defund NPR, Planned Parenthood, eliminate the Department of [No] Education, Dept of Energy, wipe out the 1, 289 overlapping and conflicting welfare programs, etc, etc, etc.
Where’s the plan to spend money on what’s really important like a double fence on the Mexican border with a half-mile no-man’s-land between the two fences lined with crocodile moats and claymores?
This seems like real good policies Mr President !
Thank you for your continued wise and inspirational leadership !
Two things that a debtor nation should not be spending money on.
I guess he can ask Pelosi and Schumer for money to secure the border, but I doubt they do very much.
The real expenses with no return are the freebies!!!
There’s something called Democrats who hold the house and have stopped all those items.
Screw Mars;BUILD THE WALL and kick the ALIENS OUT!!!!
Baraq Hussein 0. will still have to qualify for the men’s bowling team. It’s not automatic...
Wheres the plan to spend money on whats really important like a double fence on the Mexican border with a half-mile no-mans-land between the two fences lined with crocodile moats and claymores?
We got 8 billion to start that. I would rather use this money on space, than buying Iphones for fat illiterate crack whores squirting out babies any day
If only the Republicans would own the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, then we could REALLY get stuff done!
Not to worry. We are rich enough to continue buying iPhones for fat illiterate crack whores squirting out babies every day AND go to Mars AND build a wall.
The FR Post of same: Maybe It's Time To Cut The Federal Government In Half
We still need 60 votes in the Senate on most matters.
Well, then that is fanfreakintastic!!! Hodeeefreakindo!!!!
We’re in the clover, baby!
How in the hell do you justify $18 million for sports? They run. They jump. They swim. It’s not like this could not be held in any universally complex in America. Sorry pissing money away.
