Domestic discretionary spending would be capped at $429 billion per year, below 2004 levels, while military spending soars to $722 billion. Nearly $200 billion in cuts will come directly from the federal food stamp program, which helps feed 44 million people each year. Rather than breaking with Washington precedent, Trump’s spending blueprint follows established conservative orthodoxy, cutting taxes on the wealthy, boosting defense spending and taking a hatchet to programs for the poor and disabled – potentially hurting many of the rural and low-income Americans that voted him into office. Trump also proposes some of the deepest cuts to agriculture…

Trump sought the assistance of Coats and Rogers after FBI Director James B.

After earlier shaking King Salman’s hand, Trump lost his towering figure when it came to accepting the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud, the country\’s highest civilian honor which has been bestowed on presidents before him, at the Royal Court. Whether it was a deliberate curtsy or not is already being disputed but whatever Trump’s intention is, it…

President Donald Trump’s budget proposal this week will include massive cuts to Medicaid and to other anti-poverty programs, the Washington Post reported on Sunday, citing people familiar with the planning.
