Trump Budget Cut Proposals Spark Outrage

President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal has already drawn ire from a wide array of people who view it as an attempt to increase the defense and national security budgets by targeting the poor, minorities and efforts to prevent climate change.

The “America First” budget, dubbed a “Blueprint to Make America Great Again,” would eliminate funding for 19 independent government agencies that focus on regional development, international outreach and homeless programs. Funding would also be significantly decreased for the departments of agriculture, state and labor, and the Environmental Protection Agency would suffer a 30 percent cut and lose 50 programs and 3,200 staff positions, according to The Washington Post.”
