president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump has on Monday presented its views on the u.s. budget by 2020.
Here it appears, among other things, that the president will increase the defence budget by about four percent to 750 billion dollars. He will at the same time, cutting the country's development assistance, with 13 billion u.s. dollars.
The total budget is € 4,75 trillion dollar. It is, according to The New York Times, the largest in the country's history.
the President proposes, among other things, to cut the budget to the Ministry of foreign affairs with 23 percent. The UNITED states environmental protection agency (EPA) must also be cut by 31 percent.
Among the proposals is also a tax on e-cigarettes.
the Purpose is to put an end to the increasing number of young americans who are beginning to use e-cigarettes.
Democrats from both Congressional chambers - the House of Representatives and the Senate - rejected already on Sunday the initiative, writes The New York Times.
Like previous years is expected the draft budget is not, therefore, to have any chance to become something in its current form.
Particularly not because the Democrats have gained the majority in the House of Representatives.
- President Trump has somehow managed to make a budget, which is even further away from reality than the previous two, says democrat Nita Lowey.
She is the chair of the committee in the House of Representatives, which must approve payouts from the treasury.
The democratic chairman of the Senate's corresponding committee, Patrick Leahy, says that Trumps the proposal "is not worth the paper it is printed on".
Trumps proposals are expected to say something about what issues he will focus on going forward. Among other things, in connection with the election campaign next year.
In Trumps draft budget will he have allocated to 8.6 billion u.s. dollars for the financing of a wall at the Mexico border.
