"The memo obtained by The Hill notes that in the coming weeks, many department leaders will testify before congressional committees regarding the White House's fiscal 2018 budget blueprint". Trump's proposed wall would be a series of walls and fences that could cost about $21 billion in total, according to a USA government estimate.

On health care, Mulvaney disputed the argument that low-income Trump voters in red states will be most likely to lose coverage under the GOP's proposed plan, saying the president plans to take care of his voters.

President Trump aims to shrink the "bloated federal bureaucracy" in his Budget today.

Jets pulled offer to Dont'a Hightower after concerning physical
A source told NJ.com that the Jets were "not comfortable" offering Hightower a deal once they learned of his physical condition. The Patriots knew this well when they signed him to a four-year, $43.5 million contract earlier this week.

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, said in a statement Trump's proposal to reduce federal agriculture programs by $4.7 billion "does not work" and can not be justified.

The plan will include a 6 percent increase for the Department of Homeland Security, which is leading the administration's effort to crack down on immigrants in the country illegally.

Trump's plan took a big swipe at some federal institutions, envisaging a more than 31 percent cut, or $2.6 billion, for the Environmental Protection Agency and a 28 percent reduction, or $10.9 billion, for the State Department and other global programs.

Trump's budget also makes significant cuts to scientific research, especially climate change, which is the target of some of the deep cuts within the State Department.

In May, Trump will present the rest of his budget. "Our community will be hit hard by the proposed elimination of help for households in immediate danger of being without heat and Community Development Block grants that support the production of affordable housing and the revitalization of our Main Streets".

Mulvaney said the housing agency had "spent a lot of money on housing and urban development over the last decade without a lot to show for it". Absolutely. Where and how and what numbers, that's something we'll be figuring out as time goes on, ' he said.

Trump committed to providing health care to all: health secy
Under President Obama's Affordable Care Act , the federal government gave billions of dollars to states to expand Medicaid. It also does a whole lot else, covering low-income children, pregnant women, the disabled, and people in nursing homes.

"A budget that puts America first must make the safety of our people its number one priority-because without safety, there can be no prosperity."
