Trump Doesn't Really Care About His Budget

May 24, 2017 By Taegan Goddard

First Read: “By the way, how do we know the Trump White House didn’t really care much about its budget rollout yesterday? Because the president himself is thousands of miles away from Washington. Per budget expert Stan Collender, since the passage of the 1974 Congressional Budget Act, no president before Trump had been outside the country when the White House released its first budget proposal.”

3. well, how do you "win" a budget? where's the photo-op?

of course he doesn't care.

well, he likes the idea of a tax cut for him, but that's the extent of his interest....

4. Figurehead

Is the fact that Donald Trump is out of the country during the roll out of his first budget more proof that he is just a figurehead? This seems to show that the real power resides somewhere else in the White House. It may also show that the power also does not reside with either Jared, or Ivanka Kusher.
