President Trump has just unveiled his “America First” budget plan, which comes with the title, “A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again.”

The discretionary budget boosts spending on the military, homeland security, veterans, and school choice by cutting spending elsewhere – the EPA, HHS, the State Department and wasteful grant programs, to name a few.

Trump’s budget comes with a message to Congress, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said early Thursday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

We’re sending a message to Congress, and the message is very, very clear. We want more money to defend the nation; more money to defend the border; more money to enforce the laws, and we want to do it without adding to the deficit this year.

We’re not balancing the budget here. All we did is take a dollar away from over here and reprioritize it over there.  But we don’t balance the budget, but we do reprioritize spending, and that’s the message to Congress.

So if they have a better way to defend the nation, to enforce the laws without adding to the deficit, we want to talk about it, but this is the president’s message.
