President Donald Trump will propose cutting entitlement programs by $1.7 trillion, including Medicare, in a fiscal 2019 budget that seeks billions of dollars to build a border wall, improve veterans’ health care and fighting opioid abuse and that is likely to be all but ignored by Congress.

The entitlement cuts over a decade are included in a White House summary of the budget obtained by Bloomberg News. The document says that the budget will propose cutting spending on Medicare, the health program for the elderly and disabled, by $237 billion but doesn’t specify other mandatory programs that would face reductions, different categories that also includes Social Security, Medicaid, food stamps, welfare and agricultural subsidies.

The Medicare cut wouldn’t affect the program’s coverage or benefits, according to the document. The budget will also call for annual 2 percent cuts to non-defense domestic spending beginning” after 2019.’

At a hour when future prospects of rising annual budget shortfalls has frightened financial markets, the White House said in a statement — without rationale — that its plan would cut the federal deficit by$ 3 trillion over 10 times and reduce debt as percentage points of gross domestic product. Yet, in a breach from a longstanding Republican goal, the scheme won’t balance the budget in 10 years, according to person or persons very well known the proposal.

The budget, to be released later on Monday, is unlikely to gain traction on Capitol hill. Lawmakers routinely dismiss the spending petitions necessitated annually from the executive branch. And Congress passed its own spending bill on Friday, including a two-year budget deal, which the president signed into law.

According to the summing-up, Trump will advise an increase in defense spending to $716 billion and a 2.6 percent pay raise for troops. He will request $18 billion to build a wall on the Mexican border, the summary indicates.

The White House also tries $200 billion for the infrastructure proposal the administration plans to unveil alongside the coming fiscal year 2019 budget, as well as new regulatory cuts.

” This will be a big week for Infrastructure ,” Trump said in a Twitter message Monday.” After so stupidly expending$ 7 trillion in the Countries of the middle east, it is now time to start investing in OUR Country !”

Monday’s document will outline proposed spending reforms the concerned authorities says would, if legislated, cut deficiencies over the next decade — even as recently passed tax legislation and spending caps threaten to drive future annual deficiencies above$ 1 trillion.

Trump May Struggle on$ 1 Trillion Pledge to Fix Crumbling U.S .

” Just like every American family, the budget attains hard selections: fund what is necessary, cut where we can, and reduce what we borrow ,” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said in a statement.” It’s with respect for the hard work of the American people that we expend their tax dollars efficiently, effectively, and with accountability .”

A year ago, Trump asked lawmakers to cut $3.6 trillion in federal spending over the next ten years, and identified deep cuts to domestic spending programs. Instead, lawmakers last week passed a two-year government fund deal that would boost military members and non-defense spending by $300 billion over the next two years and add more than $80 billion in disaster relief.

But administration officials argue its own proposal, dead on arrival though they may be, is still an important marker of the president’s legislative priorities.

Immigration Enforcement

The plan includes a heavy emphasis on immigration enforcement. Trump is requesting $782 million to hire 2,750 new border and immigration policemen, and $2.7 billion to imprison people in the country illegally. Trump is also asking for $18 billion over the next 2 coming fiscal year toward the goal of constructing a wall on the U.S. perimeter with Mexico. That’s a key point of contention in the ongoing legislative battle over the destiny of young people, known as “Dreamers,” who were brought to the country illegally as children.

The proposal also includes $13 billion in new funding to combat the opioid epidemic, which Trump has frequently cited as among his top domestic priorities. The administration would offer a$ 3 billion boost to the Department of Health and Human Service in the next fiscal year, and $10 billion in 2019.

The proposal takes” fund that the Democrats want to put to these social programs and move it to things like infrastructure, move it to things like opioid succour, is moving forward to things that are in line with the president’s priorities so that if it does get spent, at least it get spent to the right places ,” Mulvaney said Sunday during an appearing on Fox News.

Boost for Veterans

Other elements include $85.5 billion in discretionary funded for veterans health services, education, and vocational reclamation, the OMB said on Sunday. It is not clear how much of that money would represent an increase from current spending levels.

The budget also includes $200 billion in federal funds over the next decade that the White House says would spur $1.5 trillion in infrastructure spending through partnerships with government and local governments and private developers. That includes $21 billion over the next two years that the White House says would” jump start key elements of the infrastructure initiative .”

Trump will discuss the public works proposal on Monday with governors, mayors, state legislators and other officials, and he expects to meet with Congressional presidents from both parties at the White House on Feb. 14. The chairman plans to visit Orlando, Florida, on Feb. 16 for an infrastructure event, and he and cabinet members will also promote the plan at events around the U.S ., bureaucrats said.

The White House said its initial approach is to offset the $200 billion in the budget for its infrastructure program with spending cuts elsewhere, including from some transit and transportation programs the administration doesn’t think ought to have expend effectively. But Trump is open to new sources of funding, a senior White House official told reporters.

‘Robust’ Defense

The White House also didn’t detail how much fund it wanted to devote to new spending on the military, but OMB said the proposal would provide” for a robust and rebuilt national defense .” In last year’s budget proposal, Trump called for a $52.3 billion boost for the Defense Department, while asking for deep cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, State Department, and Department of Health and Human Services.

Mulvaney said this year’s records — theoretical though they may be — would find those agencies targeted again for budget cuts.

” There’s still going to be the president’s priorities as we seek to spend the money systematically with our priorities , not with the priorities that were reflected most by the Democrats in Congress ,” he told Fox News.

Trump on Friday complained on Twitter that in order to boost military expenditures,” we were forced to increase spending on things we do not like or crave .”

The budget proposal is of the view that the U.S. economy will ramp up over the next decade to his objective of 3 percent growing, according to an administration official on Friday who showed figures to be contained in Monday’s budget proposal. Economic growth is projected at 3.2 percent in 2019 and 2020.
