New Your Times columnist Charles Blow joined an ever growing number of voices speaking out against Donald Trump’s budget.
In a blistering tweet, Blow blasted the Trump’s cruel budget plan that calls for the elimination of Federal Programs that assist the poor.
Blow refers to proposed cuts to social welfare programs in the new Trump budget. In it, programs such as the Meals on Wheels program and the heating assistance programs face deep cuts or outright elimination.
Trump plans to cut the $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program, which includes Meals On Wheels while increasing defense spending.
While Meals On Wheels struggles to provide meals for the 2.4 million people they currently serve, and the U.S. senior citizen population exploding, hunger is going to get worse. But that didn’t stop Trump from including a whopping $3 billion in aid to Israel in his budget.
