Alyssa Milano Explains Why She Believes “Trump’s budget will destroy America”

Actress and liberal activist Alyssa Milano is not a fan of President Trump’s 2021 budget proposal.

President Trump’s proposed 2021 budget features cuts to the EPA by 26% and foreign aid by 21%.

Meanwhile it boosts government support for the Department of Veteran Affairs by 13%, the Department of Homeland Security by 3% and NASA by 12%.

Milano tweeted the following a 8-part tweet in response.

The federal budget is supposed to be a statement of values.

And one look at Trump’s cuts of social programs would confirm what we always knew about him—he is cruel man and truly only cares about the richest in the country.

A thread breaking down Trump’s budget.

Didn’t Trump just promise to protect families’ health care in his State of the Union address? Well, less than a week later the President is now slashing half a trillion dollars from Medicare, $900 billion from Medicaid, and cutting Social Security Disability Insurance. 

Trump’s budget is also threatening the health care of seniors with long-term care needs, rural hospitals, people seeking opioid addiction treatment, veterans and hard-working families across America.

Reminder: The federal budget is supposed to be a statement of values. 

Millions of people rely on SNAP to put food on their tables. Trump wants to cut $200 billion from this initiative – he’s also pushing an illegal and immoral rule to weaken states’ ability to provide food assistance for thousands of Americans in high-unemployment areas. 

I’m not sure of how much more our farmers can take. They’re declaring bankruptcy at a record rate. Well, guess what? Trump’s Budget wants to slash the farmer safety net by nearly $60 billion &ransack the USDA.

Reminder: The federal budget is supposed to be a statement of values.

The land of opportunity right? Trump’s Budget will cut student loans by $179 billion & eliminate Public Service Loan Forgiveness, slashes billions from the Education Department & weakens job training and re-training initiatives by cutting the Labor Department by more than 10%

Clean air and clean water is pretty important, right?

Well, Trump doesn’t think so.

He is continuing his war on protections for clean air, clean water and public lands with a 26.5 percent cut to the EPA in his budget from what Congress just appropriated in December.

Reminder: The federal budget is supposed to be a statement of values.

Trump’s budget will destroy America.
