That same reporter asked Mulvaney if the White House had considered the "impact on property values".

Defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin Corp. are likely to benefit from the additional F-35 fighter jets Trump wants to buy, and Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc.'s shipbuilding business may grow as the Navy adds more vessels.

Our conservative columnist offers a weekly take on everything from politics to pet peeves.

Predictably, Democrats denounced the proposed steep cuts to spending on domestic programs. That number is nearly equivalent to what Russian Federation spends in total on its national defense.

Building a wall on the US-Mexico border to stop the influx of refugees and undocumented migrants coming from Central and Latin America was a hallmark of Trump's presidential campaign. But included in the highlighted news reports was a parody piece by Washington Post humor columnist Alexandra Petri that blasts Trump's budget.

"A government that does not invest in her people does not put America first".

Forty-one states have unacceptable levels of lead in their drinking water. Two-thirds of American roads are in "less than good" condition, almost half of Americans lack access to basic mass transit, and USA infrastructure lags far behind that of other Western countries.

The reasoning behind President Trump's "America First" budget proposal, unveiled earlier Thursday, continues to astound and infuriate onlookers. Precious little. numerous proposed cuts would make their lives decidedly worse.

The budget also calls for the creation of a new "Federal Emergency Response Fund" that would be created to "rapidly respond to public health outbreaks", such as Zika.
