President Trump’s budget outline calls for a surge in military spending and sharp cuts to nondefense agencies, including the E.P.A.

President Trump will instruct federal agencies on Monday to assemble a budget for the coming fiscal year that would include sharp increases in Defense Department spending; major cuts to other agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency; and no reductions to the largest entitlement programs, Social Security and Medicare, according to four senior administration officials.

The outline, drafted by Office of Management and Budget director, Mick Mulvaney, is the first volley to the federal agencies.

Just as well that he left entitlements alone for now.
No need to get Chuck Schumer stirred up.

Save that battle for another day.

Cut off the welfare and other help to all illegals, save us loads of money.

Cut off the free stuff for illegals, and use the saving to reward folks for turning in the illegals. Say $100 per illegal sounds good to start!
