Trump puts Budget Knife to Programs that Benefit the Poor
President Donald Trump is willing to cut many programs that benefit the poor and needy in order to give billions of dollars in tax cuts to his family and friends.
The president’s just released budget blueprint is so drastic that even some in his own Republican Party are already walking away from it.
Trump is hoping to cut more than 66 important programs, most of them programs the poor need to survive or lift themselves out of poverty.
Among the programs on the chopping block are –
- Single Family Housing Direct Loans
- Minority Business Development Agency
- 21st Century Community Learning Centers
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
- Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants
- Community Services Block Grant
- Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
