Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after President Trump announced his intention to propose a 2018 budget that slashes services and investments critical to hard-working families, communities and security:
“President Trump’s budget blueprint is a prescription for America’s decline. Ransacking America’s investments in jobs and working families will make our nation weaker, not stronger. A $54 billion cut will do far-reaching and long-lasting damage to our ability to meet the needs of the American people and win the jobs of the future.
“The President is surrendering America’s leadership in innovation, education, science and clean energy. President Trump has decided to put Wall Street First while abandoning working families.
“Five weeks into his Administration, President Trump has not introduced a single jobs bill. Democrats will continue to fight for a budget that creates good-paying jobs, grows opportunity, and rebuilds America.”
