With budget, Trump throws opening jab in next funding fight with Congress

The State Department will see its spending cut by 23 percent, the Environmental Protection Agency will suffer a 31 percent chop, and food stamps will be cut by $17 billion and other welfare programs by $22 billion.

In a joint statement, Pelosi and Schumer charged that Trump "hurt millions of Americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall".

White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow touts major progress in the ongoing trade talks with China.

The proposal will also include $1bn for a childcare fund that would seek to improve access to care for underserved populations, a White House official said.

The government shutdown for 35 days beginning in December after Congress and the White House deadlocked on funding for the wall.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump repeatedly promised to build a wall along the Mexico border.

The current budget is more than $4.4 trillion, with a deficit of about $1 trillion expected, largely because of Trump's 2017 tax cuts.

The Trump administration will unveil part of the president's budget proposal on Monday, a month behind schedule.

Trump's request would come in his proposed budget for fiscal year 2020. While Trump has called for boosting the military, cutting taxes, and cutting the budgets of domestic agencies and social welfare programs, numerous Democrats have proposed something much different. The plan would aim balance the budget by 2034, the official said. Congress may resist it, but we also think that they have an interest in, we hope they have an interest in maintaining, in getting rid of the deficit.

But Kudlow said he was not anxious by some predictions the American economy will only advance a little more than 2 percent this year.

However, Trump tweaked his payment claims during this year's government shutdown and said Mexico will pay "indirectly" because of a "great new trade deal" that benefits the U.S.

Regardless of whether Congress passes it, the budget request could help Trump frame his argument on border security as the 2020 presidential race begins to take shape, with the president seeking re-election.

Pelosi and Schumer said Sunday the money would be better spent on projects like education and workforce development, among other things. 'The Budget requests the resources necessary to continue constructing physical barriers on the border, increases the manpower of ICE and CBP, and proposes policy changes to end sanctuary cities'.

The budget released by the White House on Monday calls for Medicaid block grants to states - or a related idea that would create per-person funding caps - which both would be firsts in the program's half-century history.

The request would more than double the $8.1 billion already potentially available to the president after he declared a national emergency at the border in order to circumvent Congress once lawmakers refused his funding demands.

President Donald Trump will try a third time to get the funding needed to build his signature anti-illegal immigration measure, a complete wall across the United States' southern border.

A resolution opposing the emergency declaration quickly passed in the House, and the Republican-controlled Senate is poised to vote on that resolution this week.

Tax cuts have been a priority for the Republican White House and Congress in the past two years, rather than deficit reduction.

The administration will invest more than $80 billion for veterans services, a almost 10 per cent increase from current levels, including "significant" investments in rehabilitation, employment assistance and suicide prevention. The White House said Trump was seeking more than $80 billion "to ensure our veterans receive world-class health care", a almost 10 percent increase from fiscal 2019 levels.
