5 things to know about Trump's $4.4 trillion budget

Donald Trump donates fourth-quarter salary for infrastructure

President Donald Trump's infrastructure plan is receiving a frosty response from Democratic members of Congress.

He continued, "But I'm the director of the Office of Management and Budget, and my job is to try and fund the president's priorities, which is exactly what we did".

A White House official noted that Trump "has said everything is on the table" to achieve infrastructure improvements. "It is simply another scam".

All told, the new budget sees accumulating deficits of $7.2 trillion over the coming decade; Trump's plan last year projected a 10-year shortfall of $3.2 trillion.

President Donald Trump is predicting a "big week" for the roll out of his administration's infrastructure plan. "Bipartisan, make deal Dems?"

Officials such as Defense Secretary Jim Mattis have confirmed that Trump has pushed for a large-scale parade to trumpet the USA military, but Mulvaney said the administration hasn't made a decision to go forward with it.

Ahead of Mulvaney's testimony, Republican committee Chairman Steve Womack asked about the deficit impact of Trump's spending plan.

Mulvaney said at the hearing, "We've actually had many military parades in this country before". "What was very important to me was the military; what was very important to me was the tax cuts".

Chao will appear at a March 1 Senate hearing on the plan.

The rollouts of the infrastructure and budget plans on the same day quickly sparked a dispute between leading Democrats and the administration.

While all presidents' budgets are essentially dead on arrival - Congress writes and enacts its own spending legislation - Trump's plan was dead before it landed. The plan centers on using $200 billion in federal money to leverage local and state dollars for the projects.

Mulvaney said the administration would have to seek an appropriation from Congress or redirect existing funds to finance the parade.

Democrats have proposed an infrastructure plan that would entail $1 trillion in additional federal spending to jumpstart new projects around the country.

Their complaint "misses the point" of the Trump infrastructure plan, which is to put limited resources "into places where they can produce better results", Rosen said during a Monday evening call with reporters.

That deal, which includes large increases for domestic programs, rendered Monday's Trump plan for 10-year, $1.7 trillion cuts to domestic agencies such as the departments of Health and Human Services, Agriculture and Housing and Urban Development even more unrealistic.

Schumer dubbed it the "Trump toll plan", saying it would increase burdens on local governments and not improve ailing infrastructure. The U.S. gas tax has not been raised since 1993 and Congress has shifted more than $130 billion to shore up the highway trust fund since 2008. We must create sustainable solutions that includes raising a variety of gas taxes and fees. While groups including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce support the idea and the White House is neutral, key Republicans and entities including the network led by the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch are opposed.

Senator Tom Carper, who attended the meeting, confirmed a report by online publication Axios that the Republican president had backed the increase. "Unfortunately, that can't happen".
