With the aim of “making government work again,” the Trump White
House on Thursday unveiled a $1.1 trillion budget blueprint for
discretionary spending in fiscal 2017 and 2018 that would abolish
19 agencies and eliminate thousands of agency jobs.

The ""

, focused
primarily on fiscal 2018, would boost the Defense Department and
related programs at Energy by $54 billion, and Homeland Security by
$2.8 billion. It would offset such increases by cutting the State
Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development by
$10.1 billion (28 percent) and the Environmental Protection Agency
by $2.6 billion (31 percent). The latter cut would eliminate
approximately 3,200 positions, according to the document.
