Political Experts Break Down Exactly What Trump Is Proposing With His $4.4 Trillion Budget
Updated 3 months ago

When self-proclaimed billionaire Donald Trump started out on the campaign trail to become the 45th president of the United States, it came as a shock that so many white working class people became supporters. What could a New York City real estate developer who primarily dealt with luxury buildings and resorts catering to the uber-wealthy possibly have in common with someone making minimum wage?

Though Trump and the people he associates with will never have to worry about such mundane things as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, his campaign promise not to touch these programs helped ingratiate him to ardent followers.

All of those promises have come crashing down as Trump unveiled his 2018 plan, and Twitter has the receipts.

It wasn't just Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare taking a hit. Many other programs and agencies are being underfunded, including the Environmental Protection Agency and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps).

Drastic eliminations are part of the plan.

But not all programs will take a loss. The military and immigration enforcement will see increases, with $716 billion going toward military spending and maintenance for the nuclear arsenal, along with $23 billion going to border security, including the "wall" that Mexico was supposed to pay for.
