With budget, Trump throws opening jab in next funding fight with Congress

Firstpost Monday, 11 March 2019
By Roberta Rampton and Ginger Gibson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Monday told Congress to slash funding for foreign aid and the State Department and increase spending for the military and the wall he wants to build on the U.S.-Mexico border in his 2020 budget, the opening move in his next funding fight with Congress. The Republican president's $4.7 trillion budget is expected to be rejected by Congress, where Democratic leaders on Sunday warned Trump against what they called a "repeat performance" of last year's funding war, which led to a five-week partial shutdown of the federal government.
