Democrats Say Trump's Proposed Budget Cuts Are 'Malicious'

Reuters reports congressional Democrats criticized President Donald Trump's proposed social safety net changes.

One senior lawmaker said the cutbacks in Trump's 2020 budget plan including those to Medicaid and food aid were “intended to do harm”.

The budget also includes cuts to the Medicare healthcare program for the elderly.

Democrats denounced Trump’s proposed cutbacks in education, community development, student loans and free school meals for low-income students.
