The Trump administration is expected to send the full details of its first budget to Congress on May 22, but the topline details have already angered Democrats and Republicans alike. The proposal, which may be adjusted to represent changes in fiscal year 2017, boosts the Department of Homeland Security’s budget by $2.8 billion, bumps the National Nuclear Security Administration’s budget by 11 percent to bolster nuclear modernization, and provides a $52 billion increase to the Department of Defense (DOD) at the expense of funding to the U.N., Department of State, and nearly every other department.
