washington - US President Donald Trump made a 4.4 billion dollar budget proposal for the fiscal year 2019 on Monday. He is looking forward to a further increase in spending of hundreds of billions. Especially defense, border security and infrastructure benefit. The Pentagon alone can accommodate 686 billion.
On the other hand, there are huge cuts in the social policy of the government. The elderly and poor are the victims. In addition, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contributes 27 percent and the environmental protection agency EPA drops 37 percent.
Trumps now presented plan goes against his election promise to present a balanced budget. Even if all discounts on social programs of more than 3 trillion dollars in ten years go through, the national debt will rise by another 7 trillion.
