Trump offers conservative budget

And to think there still are some people who call themselves conservatives who believe Trump is not one.

From the New York Post:
President Trump intends to roll out his budget blueprint Thursday — and it will include a 31 percent reduction to the Environmental Protection Agency and a 28 percent cut to the State Department.

The EPA budget will slip from $8.2 billion to $5.6 billion — lower than it's been in four decades, the New York Times reported.

"Senior Trump officials consider the EPA the leading edge of the administration's plans to deconstruct the administrative state," one source told the Axios website on Tuesday.

Officials told The Post the State Department faces a 28 percent reduction.
Seeing increased spending will be the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.
