- Trump is looking to redefine the relationship between government and citizens
- His budget will propose dramatic cuts in federal environmental and education programs
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump plans to dismember government one dollar at a time.
His first budget — expected to be unveiled later this week — will mark Trump’s most significant attempt yet to remold national life and the relationship between federal and state power.
It would codify an assault on regulatory regimes over the environment, business and education bequeathed by former President Barack Obama, and attempt to halt decades of steadily growing government reach.
All presidential budgets are aspirational documents — and few emerge from Congress in the same shape as they arrived on Capitol Hill.
