Trump's Budget Cuts: Heritage Foundation's Fantasy Come True

Trump announcing massive budget cuts? He's going to do whatever the Heritage Foundation wants him to. Because he's their puppet, too.

Today's announcement that Donald Trump plans massive budget cuts to programs most Americans support is not surprising.

You know who wrote all these ideas down on paper in order to push them through Congress? The Heritage Foundation and Jim DeMint! The Hill:

The proposed cuts hew closely to a blueprint published last year by the conservative Heritage Foundation, a think tank that has helped staff the Trump transition.

And Trump will let them run the show on budget priorities because he's a puppet to them, too. What a weak and spineless "leader" Trump is letting the Heritage Foundation ruin his "amazing" poll numbers on day one.

Puppet. Puppet. Puppet.

PS. In case you didn't notice, the 2018 race to take back the Congress has begun. Strap in, get involved, and vote.
