President Trump’s first proposed budget shows respect for the people who pay the bills. The administration’s proposal reverses the damaging trends from previous administrations by putting our nation’s budget back into balance and reducing our debt through fiscally conservative principles, all the while delivering on President Trump’s campaign promise not to cut Social Security retirement or Medicare. The budget’s combination of regulatory, tax, and welfare reforms will provide opportunities for economic growth and creation. Get the facts about President Trump’s budget.
BALANCE & CUTTING SPENDING
Unlike any budget proposed by the previous administration, the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget achieves balance within the 10-year budget window and begins to reduce the national debt within that same window.
The policies in this Budget will drive down spending and grow the economy. By 2027, when the budget reaches balance, publicly held debt will be reduced to less than 60 percent of GDP, the lowest level since 2010.
NO CUTS TO MEDICARE & SOCIAL SECURITY
The President’s Budget does not cut core Social Security benefits. And the President is fulfilling his presidential campaign promise not to cut Medicare benefits.
SAVING TAXPAYERS MONEY
President Trump’s budget saves the American people billions of dollars through welfare, tax, and regulatory reform.
SUPPORTING OUR MILITARY
The President is requesting $54 billion, or 10 percent, more than the defense level President Obama signed into law for both the 2017 CR and the 2018 budget cap. This increase balances the need to rebuild the military with the need for disciplined, strategy-driven, executable growth.
KEEPING AMERICANS SAFE
The Budget includes over $2.6 billion in new infrastructure and technology investments in 2018 to give CBP frontline law enforcement officers the tools and technologies they need to deter, deny, identify, track, and resolve illegal activity along the border.
PUTTING AMERICAN FAMILIES FIRST
President Trump’s budget provides national paid family leave for the first time in the history of this country.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-ALABAMA) is a special guest-speaker at this exciting, packed rally in Mobile, Alabama on December 17th, 2016. Sen. Sessions was the first person in the U.S. Congress to endorse D.J. Trump in the presidential primary race, and appeared on the road with him many times, to the delight of rally crowds. Former Indiana Governor and President-Elect Mike Pence gives a rousing speech, expressing his gratitude, and introduces President-Elect Donald J. Trump at this, the last stop on their Thank You Tour. This may be the best Trump speech yet, and that’s saying a LOT!
Life-long Republican Hank Williams of Alabama sure sounded a lot like Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, & vice-versa (I think Jeff even looks a little like Hank). Give a listen:
