Trump to Request 6 Percent Domestic Cuts in $4.8 Trillion Budget

The request includes another $740.5 billion for defense spending

Today, President Donald Trump will request a 6 percent cut to non-defense spending as part of his $4.8 trillion budget proposal for 2021, breaking from a bipartisan spending agreement inked in August.

The request includes $740.5 billion in defense spending but just $590 billion for domestic spending, which includes everything from health and education to transportation and foreign policy.

The proposal has already riled Democrats, who along with Republicans and the White House had agreed to overall spending figures for both 2020 and 2021 in a deal last summer.
