Trump plans to ask for another $8.6B to fund border wall

Trump to seek another US$8.6b for border wall

Trump is signaling that he wants a fight.

"We're making great progress", Larry Kudlow said on "Fox News Sunday", adding that he was "optimistic" President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping of China would meet to ink a trade pact at some point - possibly in March or April. "However, the national debt - now more than $22 trillion - remains a grave threat to our economic and societal prosperity".

Nearly all of the proposals would require congressional approval, and lawmakers have dismissed cuts of similar size in Trump's past budgets.

"But his budget does the exact opposite of what he promised the American people".

Democrats on Sunday were quick to announce Trump's new border wall funding proposal dead on arrival.

Perhaps most notably among spending proposals, Trump is reviving his border wall fight. "The whole issue of the wall and border security is of paramount importance".

President Donald Trump on Monday will request at least another $8.6 billion in funding to build more sections of a wall along the Mexico border, setting up a fresh battle with Congress less than one month after Trump declared a national emergency.

Pelosi and Schumer said Sunday the money would be better spent on projects like education and workforce development, among other things.

Maryland Democrat Steny Hoyer, a House rep since 1981, said the budget reflected the administration's "separation from reality".

AARON JOSEFCZYK/UPI/NewscomPresident Donald Trump's newly unveiled budget proposal calls for spending even more money on the USA military and includes $8.6 billion for a border wall. That standoff led to a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in USA history. With Pentagon officials and private researchers talking up the supposed threat of China and Russian Federation, the budget promises to fund "strategic competition" with the two burgeoning superpowers, as well as efforts to deter North Korea and Iran and counter global terrorism.

While the House has voted to revoke the emergency and the Senate may have enough votes to hold up the measure, neither chamber has enough votes to override an assumed veto by Trump. The White House budget blueprint is sure to hit a wall of opposition from Democrats and encounter resistance from Republicans as well. That would provide a majority for overturning the declaration, and Trump would then be expected to veto the bill, his first use of presidential veto power. The budget projects trillion-dollar deficits until 2022.

A wall with Mexico played a big part in Trump's campaign for the White House, and it's expected to again be featured in his 2020 re-election effort.

Whilst electioneering Trump repeatedly promised that Mexico would pay for the wall.

The budget proposal dramatically raises the possibility of another government shutdown in October, and Trump used to the budget to notify Congress he is seeking an additional $8.6 billion to build sections of a wall along the U. We need a budget that works for all Americans, not just Trump and his billionaire friends.

The budget also calls on increased military spending, another in a string of proposals that prompted Democrats to label the budget a non-starter that will not win congressional support. Congress a few weeks later agreed to fund $1.375 billion to finance 55 miles of barrier on the border in Texas.

Reuters reported an administration official saying Trump's budget request grants him the ability to "say he fulfilled his commitment".

He will ask for $8.6bn to build a wall on the border with Mexico, and seek to boost defense expenditure while cutting $2.7tn in non-defense spending over a decade. The administration put the blame on Congress for ignoring proposed cuts past year, which has resulted in delaying when balance can be achieved. Along with other changes to federal welfare programs, the Trump budget aims to save $327 billion in welfare spending over 10 years.

Conservatives railed for years against deficits that rose during the first years of Barack Obama's administration as tax revenue plummeted and spending increased during the Great Recession.
