President Trump on Monday rolled out a White House budget that includes deep cuts to some federal agencies, an increase in funding for the Pentagon and $18 billion for a wall on the Mexican border.
It includes proposals to cut deficits by more than $3 trillion over a decade and lower debt levels as a percentage of the gross domestic product, but does not balance by doing away with annual deficits.

President Trump is doing what he can, just the Republicans in Congress need to support him.
All the socialist feel good globalist agencies are going to get slashed.
Let's send PATRICK MORRISEY to the US Senate!!!
West Virginia deserves better representation than the execrable Joe Manchin.
Wait, what? show me the math, please.
If the above statement is true, this means a drastic cut in entitlement spending. That can't be scored by CBU (Sarcasm). I'll cross my fingers but I WILL NOT hold my breath. Why do we have to do tricks?
The man is incredible - always think and planning ahead and working tirelessly to stay on top of things - he does more work for We The People in a week than Obama did in his entire 8 years...
This is Mulvaney, and of course has as much chance of passing congress as Calvin Coolidge has of passing for the MGM Lion.
I’m sorry but this budget has zero credibility at this point. Trump just signed a spending bill that increases spending $400 billion over two years.
PRyno and Ditch are sh0l3s when it comes to budgeting.
Really? Name one cut from the President's budget outline from last year that was enacted.
“If the above statement is true, this means a drastic cut in entitlement spending”
Assuming 30 million self-deporting Illegals, with some 75% of them on WELFARE, as well as other programs, the budget savings could be MASSIVE.
From FedGov, to states, to locals and schools, that will free up tens for billions of dollars from all sources that could go to improve the lives of AMERICAN CITIZENS.
Why an increase to the Pentagon. Utterly ridiculous. We are not at war. Cut them by 30% and bring some troops home.
Agreed. He pretty much gave away the farm to the Dem’s and now, all of a sudden he’s going to tackle the same behemoth he helped grow? With looming amnesty that will be granted none of this will matter even if it is legit.
Because without getting rid ALL the RINOs and GOPe and adding to the numbers, this budget has about as much a chance as a fart in a fan factory. It’s like his public thinking about the Dreamer’s and DACA scum. He’ll grant them what they want and they’ll love him for it and all vote Republican. Sure they will. IMHO, everything he may even want to do, hinges on one thing and one thing only. IMMIGRATION!!!
He goes one way and he just might be able to pull it off. He goes the other and the country receives wave after wave of 3rd World Ugly!!!
I feel kind of sorry for the folks who have been literally blasting Trump over the last few days, for caving on everything.
Oh ye of little faith, try to get with the program will ya.
The noise from knocking knees around here is getting deafening at times.
Huge opening offer. Will probably settle on 1-1.5 trillion. The way he does business.
Now that is a MASSIVE cut!
What did he settle for last year?
