DONALD TRUMP & GOP
DESTROY AMERICA FROM WITHIN
DONALD TRUMP MAKES AMERICA’S DEBT UNSUSTAINABLE
The $4.4 trillion budget Mr Trump released on Monday spends as much over 10 years as any budget offered by President Barack Obama.
Trump’s budget is projected to increase the deficits by $7 trillion over the next decade as the United States continues borrowing huge sums of money.
This number could double if the administration turns out to be overestimating economic growth and if the $3 trillion in spending cuts the White House has floated do not materialize in Congress.
The proposed budget would slash also spending on Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, transportation and other essential government services, all while increasing the federal deficit.
Trump’s 2019 budget, combined with the tax cuts Republicans passed last year, would amount to one of the greatest transfers of wealth from the poor to the rich in generations. It would also charge trillions of dollars in new debt to the account of future Americans. It’s a plan that could please only far-right ideologues who want to dissolve nearly every part of the federal government, save the military.
The disconnect between Trump and his senior-most intelligence advisers has raised concerns that the U.S. government will not be able to mount an effective plan to beat back Russian influence operations in the upcoming midterm elections.
And Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats said there is “no single agency in charge” of blocking Russian meddling, an admission that drew the ire of Democrats.
“The fact that we don’t have clarity about who’s in charge means, I believe, we don’t have a full plan,” said Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), the vice chairman of the committee, which is conducting an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
