Trump may try to claw back as much as $60 billion from spending bill
The White House is ignoring warnings from worried Hill Republicans and moving ahead with plans to cut billions of dollars from the massive spending bill that Congress passed in late March, after President Donald Trump has spent weeks grousing about the legislation. Office of Management and Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, is taking the lead on developing the rollback proposal. The White House could propose slashing anywhere from $30 billion to $60 billion dollars from the $1.3 trillion dollar spending bill passed for this year. The package could be released as early as May 1.
