Trump’s $4.8 trillion budget likely to receive thumbs down from US Congress

US President Donald alongside his administration’s ambitious budget plan for fiscal year 2020-21 that included a whopping $4.8 trillion in Government spending had already been met with steep criticisms from US Congressional Democrats on Monday, the 10th of February 2020, while the Democrats claimed the US President had betrayed the whole nation by adding a raft of horrendous twists in popular health alongside safety programs.

In point of fact, as it came to the 2020-21 budget spending for the US Government, again the US-Mexico border was brought in to light while US President Trump was seeking to construct a wall on the US-Mexico border by slashing billions of dollars from safety net programs by introducing a twist dubbed as welfare reform.

On top of that, as US 2020 Presidential election had been lurking over the horizon, the US 2020-21 budget was largely focused on political travesties such as pledges to reducing debts alongside budget deficit, steep slash to expenses on housing, transportations, environmental protection programs and a many more that US Congress had been rejecting over the course of past few years.

Meanwhile, touting that the 2020-21 US budget would keep promises and would instrument a mechanism to tackle budget deficits, the acting director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, Russ Vought said to reporters earlier on Monday (February 10th), “We’re going to keep proposing these types of budgets and hope that at some point Congress will have some sense of fiscal sanity and join us in trying to tackle our debt and deficits. ”
