(Before It's News)

The National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities has long been a target of the Republican Party, and tonight we learn that Donald Trump is planning to completely eliminate it.

President Trump is proposing the elimination of the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities in his federal budget plan to be released early Thursday, the chairwoman of the arts endowment told her staff on Wednesday.

When President Lyndon Johnson created the National Endowments for the Arts in 1965, the legislation stated:

An advanced civilization must not limit its efforts to science and technology alone, but must give full value and support to the other great branches of scholarly and cultural activity in order to achieve a better understanding of the past, a better analysis of the present, and a better view of the future.

But clearly, in the Trump era, it’s no longer a priority for the United States to be an “advanced civilization.”
