The White House Office of Management and Budget released President Donald Trump’s budget early Thursday. The budget features a shift from spending on the EPA, NEA, the United Nations, and the State Department while increasing funding for national defense and security.

AMERICA FIRST
 
Beginning a New Chapter of American Greatness
 
A MESSAGE TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES:
 
The American people elected me to fight for their priorities in Washington, D.C. and deliver on my promise to protect our Nation. I fully intend to keep that promise. One of the most important ways the Federal Government sets priorities is through the Budget of the United States.
 
Accordingly, I submit to the Congress this Budget Blueprint to reprioritize Federal spending so that it advances the safety and security of the American people.
 
Our aim is to meet the simple, but crucial demand of our citizens—a Government that puts the needs of its own people first. When we do that, we will set free the dreams of every American, and we will begin a new chapter of American greatness.
 
A budget that puts America first must make the safety of our people its number one priority— because without safety, there can be no prosperity.
 
That is why I have instructed my Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, to craft a budget that emphasizes national security and public safety. That work is reflected in this Budget Blueprint. To keep Americans safe, we have made tough choices that have been put off for too long. But we have also made necessary investments that are long overdue.
 
My Budget Blueprint for 2018:
 
Provides for one of the largest increases in defense spending without increasing the debt; Significantly increases the budget for immigration enforcement at the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security; Includes additional resources for a wall on the southern border with Mexico, immigration judges, expanded detention capacity, U.S. Attorneys, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Border Patrol; Increases funding to address violent crime and reduces opioid abuse; and puts America first by keeping more of America’s hard-earned tax dollars here at home.
 
The core of my first Budget Blueprint is the rebuilding of our Nation’s military without adding to our Federal deficit. There is a $54 billion increase in defense spending in 2018 that is offset by targeted reductions elsewhere. This defense funding is vital to rebuilding and preparing our Armed Forces for the future.
 
We must ensure that our courageous servicemen and women have the tools they need to deter
war, and when called upon to fight, do only one thing: Win.
 
In these dangerous times, this public safety and national security Budget Blueprint is a message to the world—a message of American strength, security, and resolve.
 
This Budget Blueprint follows through on my promise to focus on keeping Americans safe, keeping terrorists out of our country, and putting violent offenders behind bars.
