Trump presented his first budget and he's calling it "America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again." Honest question: Does every presidential national budget have grandiose names? This administration titles things like they're writing titles for summer blockbuster movies. Remember the GOP's "World’s Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017?" Who's writing this copy?
But I digress...
In Trump's budget, money earmarked for government-funded scientific and medical research will get slashed as well as the elimination of federal support for the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities.
The Washington Post really dug in and detailed these cuts to the dollar -- I recommend you spend a few minutes reading the article -- really interesting stuff if you jizz over numbers and metrics like me.
The chart below gives you a good overview though -- more money to defense, less money to programs that would actually improve things in America's own backyard.
