The request is in addition to the funds that Trump is hoping to allocate through executive action after declaring a national emergency in February over the situation on the border, a move likely to tee up a new battle with Congress.
Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, said Trump "relies on far too many accounting gimmicks and fantasy assumptions and puts forward far too few actual solutions".
Just as they did last year and the year before, members of Congress who represent Northeast Ohio are pledging to preserve the program and its funding. Rob Portman. "And every year, we have successfully defeated those efforts and ensured that this critical program receives full funding". The administration first proposed it a year ago, and the idea carries the endorsement of health secretary Alex Azar, a top Democratic lawmaker, and the pharmaceutical industry. "Instead of investing in OH communities so they can grow and create jobs, President Trump is asking Ohioans to pay for tax cuts for millionaires by gutting Great Lakes programs and eliminating economic development efforts".
President Donald Trump unveiled a new outline for government spending on March 11, titled "A Budget for a Better America: Promises Kept".

"President Trump has somehow managed to produce a budget request even more untethered from reality than his past two", said Democratic Representative Nita Lowey, chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee. That's alongside steep cuts in health care and economic support programs for the poor that Democrats - and even some Republicans - will oppose.
"In order to preserve peace through strength, the Budget provides for increased end strength, bolsters our global force posture, and invests in the capabilities and domains critical to future conflicts, like space, artificial intelligence, and hypersonics", Russ Vought, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, said in a statement Sunday night.
The budget envisions a complete repeal of Obamacare and an extension of the Republican tax cut law, which the White House says is necessary to keep the economy booming.
The White House said the plan is a legitimate effort to try to rein in a sea of federal red ink and make needed investments in the military, and that it's Congress that has shirked its duty on the spending front in recent years. "It's only now in our third budget that they're willing to have a conversation about the national debt". "Congress, however, needs to make entitlement reform a priority if we are to address the nation's burgeoning national debt in the long term".
