Agencies Receive Cuts with President Trump's Proposal

That means numerous agency's programs would experience crippling budget cuts, while others would get wiped out entirely. "This is a hard-power budget, not a soft-power budget", White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said. "So I think it's a very counterproductive budget".

For instance, in order to dedicate funds to the wall along the border and to augment the Pentagon's budget, Trump proposes compromising on his other goals. But some prominent Republicans were also quick to criticize the budget.

He did not know about a timeline for when the administration would be able to introduce a balanced budget.

Not everything is rosy, of course.

"Our $20 trillion national debt is a crisis, not just for the nation, but for every citizen", said the OMB director.

One of the most important ways the Federal Government sets priorities is through the Budget of the United States.

Rep. Tom Cole, R-Oklahoma, a senior member of the appropriations committee who recently led the subcommittee that approved funding for the National Institutes of Health and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, dismissed concerns about domestic cuts in the blueprint. Residents of Western states are not too keen on Trump's plan to revive the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump. But the federal program that funds the work would be severely threatened under President Trump's budget plan. For those conservatives who want to see increased defense spending, it wasn't enough; for those who want to see deficit reduction, there wasn't much of that either since entitlement spending wasn't even addressed. Social Security and Medicare are left untouched. He said he planned to reach out to the state's Congressional delegation and governors of other states with strong links to the NIH to formulate a strategy. According to Trump, these budget changes have been long overdue. Beaton said his office receives roughly $65 million from the federal government.

In North Carolina one budget cut proposed by the Trump administration would have likely serious consequences: Universities in North Carolina have gotten hundred of millions of dollars in research money over the years through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that has funded life-changing medical/scientific research. Ultimately, Democrats and Republicans in Congress will have to come to a compromise, and passing defense increases has been tough for Republican presidents.

The White House's new official email provides its readers with a daily dose of news from the Trump administration, from events to a "photo of the day" to a curated selection of media reports.

That's in part because the proposed cuts were all offset with increased spending on the military.

That may matter little to Trump, who stands to win either way: If lawmakers vote down the austere measures, crammed with the miserly, unrealistic promises Trump made to supporters during the campaign, Trump can tell his supporters that it was "the swamp" - an ineffective and obstructionist Congress - that ate his big plans for government.
