Trump’s $4.4 trillion budget proposal provides for $716 billion in spending on military programmes and for maintaining the US nuclear arsenal.
Trump said last year that he would end by March 5 a programme that was set up by former President Barack Obama to protect the Dreamers from deportation, and he urged Congress to act before that date. No action has resulted.
The White House offered to more than double the number of “Dreamers”who would be protected from deportation.
Nine months after President Donald Trump took office, the first tangible signs of progress on one of the central promises of his campaign have appeared along the US border with Mexico.
US President Donald Trump is unlikely to win congressional support for funds he wants for a proposed US-Mexico border wall before an October 1 deadline.
Trump’s decision to take the wall off the table for now will avert the imminent government shutdown and probably lead to a short-term extension of spending.
In his first critical remarks directed at Trump since he took office, Castro termed his trade policies “egotistical” and his plan to build a wall along the Mexican border “irrational.”
