Krauthammer: Trump's Budget Proposal Is 'Dead on Arrival'
Charles Krauthammer believes that President Trump’s “America First” budget proposal is "dead on arrival."
"Capitol Hill is a huge morgue of presidential budgets," Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight.
He explained that most presidential budget proposals are effectively "wishlists" that express a president's interests, and that's what this is.
Krauthammer said one of the major problems with Trump's $1.15 trillion budget is that it omits any figures on entitlements, such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid or food stamps.
"It's not in here because we've got a president who promised in the campaign - unlike just about every other Republican opponent - he wasn't going to touch a hair on the head of entitlements," Krauthammer said.
He said that means that budget cuts would have to come out of domestic, discretionary spending.
"When you do that, you end up with these cuts which are never going to happen," Krauthammer said.
