The White House budget is set to be released and one administration official has indicating that President Trump has big plans for it.
According to the source Trump is seeking more border wall funds as well as a big enough boost to get his new military branch up and running, the Space Force.
With a request of $750 billion for defense, Trump will bolster the military while cutting non-defense discretionary costs by 5 percent BELOW the cap.
This signifies that Trump plans to adhere to spending caps, which will likely anger lawmakers who make up budget deals to avoid them.
If lawmakers can’t work their deals, then Trump will have essentially effected spending cuts on all offending parties.
If Trump’s plan goes into place the official predicts it could balance the budget in 15 years.
