Posted on

( Daily Mail ) Trump wants $1.5 BILLION for the wall and cash for the military but will slash foreign aid and eliminate funding for PBS and NPR in budget designed to infuriate liberals.

  • Trump will release a budget blueprint today that makes cuts to discretionary spending to fund his border wall and the military build-up he’s been promising
  • State Department is cut deepest with a 28% reduction to its foreign aid division
  • The Environmental Protection Agency and the Housing and Urban Development Department are also expected to suffer
  • The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides support to NPR and PBS, will see its funding phased out
  • Trump’s budget may not make it past the House and Senate – a top Republican has said it’s ‘dead on arrival’
  • Dramatic cuts make way room for $1.5B for his wall with Mexico in 2018 and $54 billion for defense without adding to the federal deficit
