Bloomberg lists 80 programs that stand to lose under Trump's proposed budget

He's doing right in many quarters at home BUT not in his foreign affairs policies.  Wasn't he supposed to stop interfering in the Middle East and butting out of  other countries' affairs.  US personnel have gone uninvited into Syria, they are still occupying Iraq on the pretext of defending Iraqis from ISIS that the USA itself is largely responsible for creating in the first place.  Then there's Afghanistan where the occupation has been going on for 16 long years and bombing and death is a daily business.  

If not for the illegal foreign wars and the misinformation on Iran and Shia Muslims  that he has been brainwashed with by the Gaza butchers and lawn mowing Israeli Jews, I would say he's doing a "not too bad" of a job at home.

At first glance, it might look like he's being a meano but when you consider how the money is distributed to the same kind of causes but under different "names" of the entities, you can see that the duplicates are being done away with.

These 80 Programs Would Lose Federal Funding Under Trump’s Proposed Budget

U.S. President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal includes massive cuts across most of the federal government. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture face unprecedented discretionary funding cuts in excess of 25 percent, as Trump attempts to boost the military and national security.

Trump’s budget also proposes eliminating discretionary funding altogether for at least 19 agencies and 61 other programs. Plans for new NASA missions, climate change research, aid for low-income families and funding for commercial flights to rural airports would all be on the chopping block. Trump says many of these programs are inefficient or duplicative. All this could change; Trump will deliver a final budget in May and Congress would have to approve the cuts—something they have often resisted in the past.
