Trump reveals first federal budget

|By:, SA News Editor

The Trump administration is making its first stab at translating the president's campaign promises into hard numbers with a fiscal 2018 budget blueprint.

It boosts spending for defense, homeland security and veterans affairs, while making deep cuts in domestic programs, environmental protection and foreign aid.

Trump also wants Congress to put a down payment on a border wall, although an infrastructure plan is still in the making.
