White House: Trump’s budget cuts to Violence Against Women programs just ‘technical’

domestic violenceA chart buried on page 245 of President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget analysis looks alarming: It shows a massive decrease in funding over 10 years for federal programs that aid survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
