"President Donald Trump on Monday is expected to unveil his latest budget, a $4.8 trillion proposal that will ask Congress for $2 billion for his long-promised border wall, will raise military spending, and will propose cuts to social safety-net programs, including Medicare and Medicaid.
According to a report Sunday from The Wall Street Journal, a senior Trump administration official said the president has plans to increase military spending $740.5 billion beginning in FY 2021, an increase of 0.3%.
As The Wall Street Journal noted, the president’s budget is not likely to be passed into law in the form that it will be in when he announces it Monday. It’s a jumping-off point of sorts that begins the negotiations between the president and Congress. Further complicating his plans is the fact the president again faces a Democratic majority in the House, likely to push back on the president’s proposals, especially after his impeachment last year.
Trump has asked for $2 billion to fund his enhancements to the border wall between the US and Mexico, a cornerstone of his 2016 bid for the Oval Office. Trump has faced significant barriers toward building the wall, particularly a Congress less than thrilled about funding the project, which the president used to claim would be paid for by Mexico."
