Donald Trump reviving border wall fight with new budget request

BP_Donald

The U.S. Department of Education released President Donald Trump's 2020 budget request Monday, which includes an experimental teacher voucher program.

President Trump's budget proposal for 2020 calls for $8.6 billion in new border wall funding, a signal that the White House is not backing away from its demand that triggered a 35-day government shutdown.

On a separate issue, Kudlow expressed optimism that US economic growth will surpass three percent "in 2019 and beyond", adding that the 2020 budget anticipates a five percent reduction in government spending.

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. The $4.7 trillion funding plan cuts foreign aid and DC spending, and gives a boost to the military and border security, as well as to countering Russia's "influence".

He says the budget will contain a proposed 5 percent across-the-board reduction in domestic spending. The standoff over the wall led to a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in USA history.

The administration will invest more than $80bn for veterans services, a almost 10% increase.

Back in the US, Trump has asked for $5 billion to fund the construction of his long-promised border wall, and $3.8 billion to repay the funds redirected following his national emergency declaration last month.

Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, warned that the debt load will lead to slower income growth and stalled opportunities for Americans.

Mark Zuckerberg wants to make Facebook more 'privacy focused'
And last September, Facebook saw its stock fall 3 percent in a single day after news of a data breach involving 50 million users. As Mark Zuckerberg himself notes: "Frankly we don't now have a strong reputation for building privacy protective services".

"We are signalling in this budget that the paradigm of a dollar of non-defence increase for every dollar of defence is no longer - and hasn't been for some time - affordable for this country", said a senior administration official who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity.

The president's latest wall request factors in a 2017 U.S. Customs and Border Protection plan calling for the building or replacement of about 722 miles of fencing along the Mexican border. "The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again", said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY. -Mexican border as part of his budget request to be released Monday. The new proposal comes as the House is in Democratic hands and even congressional Republicans have largely turned their attention away from dismantling the ACA.

Speaking on CNBC, Vought confirmed that the $8.6bn border request was part of Trump's blueprint for the 2020 budget year, which begins on 1 October.

The border wall remains a signature issue for the president and is poised to stay at the forefront of his agenda, even though Congress has resisted giving him more money for it. The national emergency declaration unsettled many lawmakers, including some of his key allies in the Senate.

With Democrats controlling the House of Representatives, Mr Trump's new wall-funding request appears to stand little chance. That is roughly $54 billion from current high levels, although proposed disaster spending chews up about half of that savings.

"We have a crisis down there", White House adviser Larry Kudlow said on Fox News Sunday.

President Donald Trump will this week request at least another US$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. The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. Despite media messaging that permeates even many other conservative outlets, actual cuts - i.e. literally spending less year over year - are rare. He used to say Mexico would pay for it, but Mexico has refused to do so. To avoid steep automatic cuts in many programs, Congress and the White House must agree to lift mandatory spending caps set in a 2011 law, around the same time the president and lawmakers have to negotiate raising the debt ceiling to avoid a default.
