Trumps Terrible Budget Plan Is a Game Changing Own Goal

trump budget

TL;DR

And hes done a lot of ghastly things etc. But all those things are uniquely Trumpian. This week marks the first time hes done something just conventionally politically stupid. Every caricature youd want to make of a Republican budget it opens itself up to. it wants to give people on food stamps box lunches again. President Donald Trump says in his budget that hes asking for the highest amount ever for certain wildfire prevention programs. His proposal actually contains less money for wildfire prevention efforts than the current federal spending plan. Both of those budget items directly relate to wildfire prevention on different federal lands. Congress has consistently granted more to wildfire prevention funding than Trump has requested.
