News Flash : President Donald Trump’s outline first budget
Editor Remarks : President Trump released his administration’s first federal budget blueprint revealing his plan to dramatically reduce the size of the government. President Donald Trump’s first official budget document includes massive changes, Programmes to assist the poor are slashed. And while almost every department would face large cuts, three would see sizable increases in spending: Defense, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs. Trump wants to spend $54 billion more on defense, put a down payment on his border wall, and breathe life into a few other campaign promises His initial budget outline does not incorporate his promise to pour $1 trillion into roads, bridges, airports and other infrastructure projects. The White House has said the infrastructure plan is still to come.Trump wants to get rid of more than 50 EPA programs, end funding for former Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature Clean Power Plan aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions, and cut renewable energy research programs at the Energy Department. The budget requests $1.5 billion to detain and remove undocumented immigrants, and $314 million to hire 500 new Border Patrol officers and 1,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement office. There is no doubt that it’s a hard power budget which mainly focus on security concern rather than society needs.
